  4. Abstract:
  5. This study is concerned with numerical modeling of viscous surface wave motion using boundary element method (BEM). The equations of motion for thin boundary layers at the solid surfaces are coupled with the potential flow in the bulk of the fluid, and a mixed BEM-finite difference technique is used to obtain the viscosity-related quantities such as wave damping rate, shear stress, and velocity distribution inside the boundary layer. The technique is presented for standing surface wave motion. An excellent agreement is obtained between the numerical predictions and the previous results. The extension to other free surface problems is straightforward. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
