MAXIMUM WAVE LOADINGS ON FIXED AND FLOATING PLATFORMS
The hydrodynamic forces acting on fixed and floating platforms are reviewed and experience with determining maximum wave loads is discussed. The effect of wave non-linearities is covered. Field data for high wave conditions are summarized and is used in several examples to estimate design wave conditions and to calculate maximum wave forces.
