The paper presents the contribution to the CCP-WSI Blind Test, in which the responses of wave energy converterssubjected to extreme waves are considered, by a hybrid model, qaleFOAM, coupling a two-phase Navier–Stokes (NS) modeland the fully nonlinear potential theory (FNPT) using the spatially hierarchical approach. The former governs a limitedcomputational domain (NS domain) around the structures and is solved by the OpenFOAM/InterDyMFoam. The lattercovers the rest of the domain (FNPT domain) and is solved by using the quasi Lagrangian-Eulerian finite element method.Two numerical techniques have been developed to tackle the challenges and maximizing the computational efficiency ofthe qaleFOAM, including a modified solver for the six-degree-of-freedom motions of rigid bodies in the NS model and animproved passive wave absorber imposed at the outlet of the NS domain. With these developments, the accuracy and thecomputational efficiency of the qaleFOAM are analyzed for the cases considered in the blind test.
