Wave Loads & Motions
The MARIN R&D team “Wave Loads and Motions” is in charge of research in the following fields:
• Realistic modelling of waves, both in the model basin and in simulation tools
• Wave loads on and motions of different types ships and offshore structures

This includes work on
• Identification and modelling of relevant physical processes
• Development of design and analysis tools for the hydrodynamic behaviour of structures, e.g. seakeeping and mooring analyses
• Analysis of motion behaviour
• Analysis of hydro-structural response
• Appropriate statistical analysis, also of non-linear processes and extremes

As such, the team’s research activities are linked to the research programmes
