NEW STUDIES IMPROVE WAVE FORCE SPECTRAL CALCULATIONS

Wave forces acting on an offshore structure can cause resonance which promotes metal fatigue, increases stress on the structure, and leads to larger excursions due to dynamic motion. A new approach to calculating these forces is described that can improve offshore structure design. Influence of a current was also included in the calculations.
