Abstract
For model tests, the correct generation of the most realistic
representation of the natural wave field is of greatest importance
as the environmental conditions denote the starting point for all
following analyses of any behaviour of a marine structure. Thus,
it has to be defined first what ”reality” is, followed by a thorough
analysis of the inherent limitations of basin wave fields. Furthermore,
all realistic aspects of the wave field have to be modelled
at sufficient accuracy involving the wave maker control,
flap geometries and appropriate analysis techniques. This paper
gives an overview of the most recent developments in advanced
basin wave modelling including a wide range of aspects as realistic
wave spreading, deterministic wave generation, focusing
waves, directional wave analysis, spurious waves and shallow
water wave generation.
