Observations of wave-structure interaction for a multi-legged concrete platform

Abstract:

This paper presents the results of a physical model study of waves around the Brent Bravo gravity based structure. The work arose as a result of a recent incident in which significant amounts of water were projected upwards, thus causing damage to ancillary steelwork and pipework. Measurements of the water surface elevation in the vicinity of the model structure show that the three large, closely spaced legs give considerable wave-structure interaction. In particular, if the incident waves ar...
