...P. Agarwal; L. Manuel In the design of wind turbines—onshore or offshore—the prediction of extreme loads associated with a target return period requires statistical extrapolation from available loads data. The data required for such extrapolation are obtained by stochastic time-domain simulation...

...P. Roux de Reilhac; F. Bonnefoy; P. Ferrant In the present work, we study the capabilities of a one-side segmented wavemaker to generate multidirectional sea states. We want to reproduce typical West Africa sea conditions in a rectangular basin, that is, two spectra representing swell and wind...

Furthermore, comparisons of the empirical data with some probabilistic models often used in practice shows that none of these models is able to characterize adequately all the cases of combined sea-states examined. In fact, they might be used only in the case of wind-sea dominated sea-states with small...

Only vortex-induced vibrations (VIV) of a moored spar were considered for this study, although it is believed that similar active-control systems can contend equally well with low-frequency wave-drift and wind-induced motions. VIV has been selected for this demonstration due...
