Behaviour at sea and sea loads are more and more becoming an important consideration in the design of modern ships. Dynamical calculations are often carried out for very large tankers, for LNG carriers, for container-ships, and for a variety of sea-going structures, among which those employed in oil exploitation. All these applications have given an impetus to wave-load calculations. But, engineers are known to attach importance to the validity of their estimates: therefore, along with the development of programmes using the new methods, they have attempted to correlate the results of their calculations to measurement results. The present paper, after having briefly discussed some important aspects of the theory of wave behaviour and wave loads, intends to give in some detail examples of correlation between extensive calculations and measurements at sea.
