Wave Impacts due to Steep Fronted Waves

Date1 Jan 2004
It is the question whether ‘Rogue waves’ can only be identified and characterized by their extreme height s. The results presented in this abstract and related papers [1,2,4,5,6] show for instance that an extreme wave front steepness can induce large impact pressures on the hull of a moored ship-type offshore structure. As part of the ‘SAFE-FLOW’ Joint Industry Project these loads were investigated with a dedicated series of model tests.
