APPLICATION OF SPECTRAL TECHNIQUES TO FORECASTING WAVE CONDITIONS AND WAVE-INDUCED VESSEL MOTIONS

A spectral forecasting system has been developed to support at-sea operations of the offshore industry. At the heart of the system are spectral ocean wave models of the North Sea, the United States east coast and the Gulf of Alaska. The outputs of these wave models are combined with dynamical characteristics of operating vessels to produce prediction of wave-induced vessel motions. The system has been operated for over two years and has been used to forecast the evolving wave states, wave statistics, vessel motions and motion statistics. Order from NSFI as No. 16637.
