Wave Loads and Vessel Motions

Wave Loads and Vessel Motions

The prediction of wave loading is a key component of engineering design for offshore structures, either to determine design loads, or to calculate resulting vessel motions. BMT's specialist knowledge and experience in numerical modelling of wave loads and vessel response, software development and physical model testing provides an unrivalled analysis and consultancy capability.

Consultancy Services

· · · Third party verification Independent expert advice to model test programmes Assessment of wave loading and induced motions for fixed and floating structures

- Wave loads, hydrodynamic added masses and damping coefficients - Motions of floating structures and vessels in regular and irregular waves - Tensions in mooring lines and flexible risers, together with attachment point loads - Mean and low frequency wave drift forces and motions in regular and irregular waves - Wave run-up and air-gap
