Water wave diffraction and the spectral response surface method

Abstract:

For the purposes of guiding air-gap design, wave-structure interaction is modelled using linear and 2nd-order diffraction theory. A 4-column gravity-based structure is considered, consisting of a subsurface caisson with 4 large-diameter columns mounted on top. The diffraction analyses are combined with the spectral response surface (SRS) method of Tromans and Vanderschuren to compute extreme surface elevation statistics. Water is predicted to reach very high elevations both close to the colum...
