In this study, numerical simulations have been carried out to investigate the non-linear wave run-up phenomena of a single cylinder according to wave period and slope. In order to perform numerical analysis on a three-dimensional incompressible viscous turbulent two phase flow, this study used a Volume Of Fluid (VOF) technique and a realizable turbulence model based on the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) commercial code, “STAR-CCM+”. Various incoming wave conditions have been applied to see how the wave steepness and wave periods affect the wave run-up height on the circular cylinder. Finally, the wave run-up estimation results for wave slopes and periods were compared with the related experimental results and they had good agreement. It was confirmed that as the wave steepness increased, the run-up phenomenon appeared largely at the part where the cylinder hit the incident wave.
