Abstract

A hybrid model for simulating rogue waves in random seas on a large temporal and spatial scale is proposed in this paper. It is formed by combining the derived fifth order Enhanced Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation based on Fourier transform, the Enhanced Spectral Boundary Integral (ESBI) method and its simplified version. The numerical techniques and algorithm for coupling three models on time scale are suggested. Using the algorithm, the switch between the three models during the computation is triggered automatically according to wave nonlinearities. Numerical tests are carried out and the results indicate that this hybrid model could simulate rogue waves both accurately and efficiently. In some cases discussed, the hybrid model is more than 10 times faster than just using the ESBI method, and it is also much faster than other methods reported in the literature.
