WAVE MEASUREMENTS BY A PRESSURE TYPE WAVE GAUGE

P.O Bergan, A. Torum, A. Tratteberg

Abstract


The paper deals with comparative measurements of irregular model waves by a pressure type wave gauge and a continuous wire wave gauge. For the depth and wave conditions used in the study it is concluded that the height of individual waves obtained by a pressure type gauge and using the first order wave theory may be in considerable error, while wave height distributions and wave spectra are fairly good estimated.
