FULL-SCALE WAVE FORCES ON PILES IN SHALLOW WATER

Uwe Sparboom, Nico Efthimiou, Andreas Voigt

Abstract


This paper presents some results of simultaneous full-scale wave kinematic and local force measurements (field and laboratory) on a slender, vertical cylindrical pile (test-section) under shallow water conditions. The usual application of Morison's equation is taken under critical consideration due to the real flow regime near the surf zone. The data were analyzed in the time domain as well as in the amplitude and frequency domain. Two estimation methods for force coefficients were tested and compared.
