The accurate description of the complex genesis and evolution of ocean waves as well as the associated kinematics and dynamics is indispensable for the design of offshore structures and assessment of marine operations. In the majority of cases, the water wave problem is reduced to potential flow theory on a somehow simplified level. However, the non-linear terms in the surface boundary conditions and the fact that they must be fulfilled on the unknown water surface make the boundary value problem considerably complex. On the one hand, the use of complex methods for solving the boundary value problem may give, at the expense of computational time, a very accurate representation of reality. On the other hand, simplified methods are numerically efficient but may only provide sufficient accuracy for a limited range of applications. This paper investigates the influence of different characteristic sea state parameters on the accuracy of irregular wave field simulations (based on a JONSWAP spectrum) by applying the high-order spectral method. Hereby, the underlying Taylor series expansion is truncated at different orders so that numerical simulations of different complexity can be investigated. The wave steepness, spectral-peak enhancement factor as well as directional spreading are systematically varied and truncation at fourth order serves as reference. It is shown that, for specific parameters in terms of wave steepness, enhancement factor and simulation time, the boundary value problem can be significantly reduced while providing sufficient accuracy.
