Joint distributions of successive wave crest heights and successive wave trough depths for nonlinear waves are presented. Two different approaches are used in order to derive the probability distributions. The first method includes the effect of second-order Stokestype nonlinearity on successive wave statistics in finite water depth, and the second method is a parametric model only for crest heights based on second-order simulations. The theoretical distributions are compared with observed wave data obtained from field measurements in the central North Sea.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Ship Research is a quarterly publication providing highly technical papers on applied research in hydrodynamics, propulsion, ship motions, structures, and vibrations. While the Journal requires that papers present the results of research that advances ship and ocean science and engineering, most contributions bear directly on other disciplines, such as civil and mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, and numerical analysis. High quality papers are contributed from the U.S., Canada and overseas, with representation from established authorities as well as new researchers.
