Numerical model is one of the means for investigating turbulent wave boundary layer. Many scholars have used various eddy-viscosity models to simulate wave turbulent boundary layer flow. On the basis of analyzing existing models, the article uses more reasonable boundary condition to establish an advanced model of turbulent wave boundary layer by k-ε model. Past models have two problems. Firstly, the calculation area is not united since one of the calculation areas is all-water depth and another is boundary layer thickness. Aimed at this problem, this model makes a sensitivity analysis of velocity and eddy-viscosity for various calculation area, which turns out that velocity inside the boundary layer is low-sensitive while the eddy-viscosity is high-sensitive to the change of calculation area. Secondly, a new integration adjust coefficient p is presented to solve the five empirical constants which are difficult to adjust in k-ε model. Although these five empirical constants have recommended value, the universality is not good. In order to obtain better eddy-viscosity value, many methods were suggested to get these five empirical constants, however, most are very complicated. In this article, adjust coefficient p is put before the diffusion item in the velocity equation, and p is a little bit smaller than 1. The result indicates that a reasonable eddy-viscosity can be easily adjusted using this method. The modified model has overcome some shortcomings of the previous models, and gets a better simulation effect.
