Laboratory recreation of the Draupner wave and the role of breaking in crossing seas

Abstract:

Freak or rogue waves are so called because of their unexpectedly large size relative to the population of smaller waves in which they occur. The 25:6 m high Draupner wave, observed in a sea state with a significant wave height of 12 m, was one of the first confirmed field measurements of a freak wave. The physical mechanisms that give rise to freak waves such as the Draupner wave are still contentious. Through physical experiments carried out in a circular wave tank, we attempt to recreate th...
