Wave basin model tests are performed to determine the motion behaviour of a vessel or floating construction. They are performed for a predetermined loading condition, often being a limiting operational condition with challenging motion behaviour. To represent the motion behaviour for this operational condition, accurate modelling of the predetermined weight distribution (mass, centre of gravity and inertia properties) is of crucial importance.
