This example shows the possibilities of modeling water waves using the meshless CFD Software NOGRID points. Shown below is an ocean water wave slamming against and flowing around a lighthouse.

Due to the special architecture of the lighthouse the wave front is forced below the living quarters. Integration of the forces acted upon the lighthouse helps to evaluate the buildings stability in many different weather conditions. The effectiveness of architectural improvements can be judged quickly.
