INVESTIGATIONS ON ORBITAL VELOCITIES AND PRESSURES IN IRREGULAR WAVES

K.F. Daemrich, W.D. Eggert, H. Cordes

Abstract


This paper deals with the results of hydraulic model investigations of orbital velocities and pressures in irregular waves. Different simulation methods in the time and frequency domain were checked or developed, and the theoretical results compared with measurements. Using simulation methods based on linear wave theory, results with good correlation are obtained, at locations near the water surface, however, a tendency towards over- or underestimation exists.

Keywords
