Wave tank experiments

Overview: The workshop will teach offshore hydrodynamics applied to offshore wind turbine foundations (fixed and floating). Lectures will cover: design considerations; model testing techniques; first- and second-order wave loads; numerical modelling of FOWTs; a case study of a semi-submersible foundation; and a practical assignment in the wave tank. Practical work will also be performed in a wave basin.
