EXTREME WAVE CONDITIONS IN BRITISH AND ADJACENT WATERS

Laurence Draper

Abstract


Information on extreme wave conditions is needed in the design of offshore structures. This paper present the results of calculations of the parameters in the 50-year storm; the work has been based on extreme wind data and on instrumental wave measurements. The results are complementary, and are combined in two maps, one of extreme wave height and the other of the corresponding wave period.
