Current blockage in sheared flow: Experiments and numerical modelling of regular waves and strongly sheared current through a space-frame structure

Abstract:

Space-frame structures supporting marine renewable energy machines such as offshore wind turbines are exposed to complex hydrodynamic forces resulting from the coexistence of waves and currents. Previous investigations on the interaction of such a structure acting as an obstacle array with regular waves and in-line uniform current reported a reduced fluid loading due to current blockage. This paper documents laboratory-scale experimental evidence for reduced fluid loading on a truss structure...
