At present, caused by a large amount of wave energy resources and huge energy capacity, the development and utilization of wave energy have come to be an essential development focus of wave energy manufacturing. The purpose of this research is to simulate the ocean in an offshore environment. A three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model was used to analyze the propagation of ocean waves. The Volume of Fluid (VOF) multiphase model and laminar model were used to analyze wave propagation in offshore conditions. Function Methodology and Mobile Methodology were implemented by applying User Defined Function (UDF) code which characterizes transient velocity profile. The parametric study was performed to analyze how velocity and amplitude change. The models were first validated by comparing them with previous analytical wave solutions. To prevent the reflection of the wave, a damping term was added by using User Define Function to define the viscosity of the water phase.
