The most commonly used model spectra with length scales are presented in 2. Wave frequency is the inverse of wave period: R is positive in stable air, i. It has been suggested that freak waves can be generated by mechanisms vnv Strong underwater earthquakes can also lead to generation of tsunamis which in coastal regions behaves like a long shallow water wave similar to a strong horizontal current.

The assumption of stationary conditions over minute periods is not always valid. When different terrain roughnesses prevail in different directions, i. ISO rules and regulations. This will be the case for example in the vicinity of a large building. The wind speed will form a random field in space. Other DNV Recommended Practices give specific information on environmental loading for specific marine structures.

No consensus has been tp neither about a definition of a freak event nor about the probability of occurrence of freak waves. Several model spectra exist. An iterative approach is then necessary for solution rnv the Richardson number R.


In rolling terrain, Ax tends to be somewhat larger. Journal of the Geophysical Research, 80, Both marginal distributions and joint environmental models can be applied for wave climate description. The storm statistics is appreciated if a sufficient number of storm events exists.

Table gives expressions for horizontal fluid velocity u and vertical fluid velocity w in a linear Airy wave and in a secondorder Stokes wave. The vertical wind profile may deviate significantly from the model profiles given in 2.


If a reliable simultaneous database exists, the environmental phenomena can be described by joint probabilities. The approximation is a good approximation in the upper tail of the distribution, which is typically used for prediction of rare mean wind speeds such as those with return periods of 50 and years.

About us Contact us Help Terms of use. The coherence spectrum Coh r,f is a frequency-dependent measure of the spatial connectivity of the dp speed and expresses the squared correlation between the power spectral densities at frequency f in two points separated a distance r apart in space.

A corresponding expression applies for crest height and for storm events. The horizontal axis is a measure of shallowness while the vertical axis is a measure of steepness Chakrabarti, 3. The wind profile depends much on the atmospheric stability conditions. Unless data indicate otherwise, the integral length scale Lu can be calculated as for the Kaimal spectrum, see 2.

In LS the sum of squared errors between the empirical distribution and the fitted probabilities are minimized. Generally, this requires some procedure that accounts for the short term variability of response within the sea state, such that inflating the significant wave height or using an increased fractile value for the short term extreme value distribution of response, confer 3.

The basic principles applied in this Fnv are in agreement with the most recognized rules and reflect industry practice and latest research. In the first approach, wind sea and swell are modelled as independent variables, which is generally a reasonable assumption with regard to the physics of combined seas.


The integral length scale Lu is in the range m with a mean value of m. For responses with natural periods of this order, the damping is normally quite small, and the memory time of the response process is several response periods. Whenever env is important to estimate the energy in the low frequency range c2005 the wind spectrum over water, the Fr? Wave conditions which are to be considered for structural design purposes, may be described either by deterministic design wave methods or by stochastic methods applying wave spectra.

Value FE xe 0. Hence extremes predicted by this distribution are likely dp be slightly on the low side. This implies that conversion of wind data to heights without wind measurements will be encumbered with uncertainty. It is neither intended to cover wind conditions experienced during smallscale events such as fast propagating arctic low pressures of limited extension.

WMO specifies minimum requirements to hindcast models and their accuracy.

It is recommended that the general Pareto distribution is not used. When terrain conditions and atmospheric stability conditions are not complex, the wind ep profile may be represented by an idealised model profile. Refraction has also an affect on the amplitude. A sea state is specified by a wave frequency spectrum with a given significant wave height, a representative frequency, a mean propagation direction and a spreading function.
