Study About the Effect of Waves On Offshore Buildings Announced

-

In a quest toward safer maritime structures, a study has been launched to study the effects of large waves on maritime structures.

The research aims to answer an as-yet-still-poorly-understood fact: the relationship between the load from waves and the load effect on offshore structures.

The research is funded by the research council of Norway and is a collaboration between members from the SINTEF Ocean and the NTNU. Commenting on the study, Rene Kaufmann, a postdoctoral fellow at the NTNU SIMLab, stated:

“It’s crucial to understand the mutual interaction between the impacting wave and the response of the structure.”

The research should yield some interesting real-world applications, including better and safer design of overwater bridges, oil rigs, wind farms, and any other man-made structures exposed to the waves’ power.
