Using Morison's equation and the directional spectrum of surface waves, it is possible to create a stationary random process that is statistically equivalent to the random process of the force exerted by wind-generated waves on a rigid cylinder. This was validated by the results of two small-scale field experiments dealing with wave forces on truncated vertical cylinders and submerged horizontal cylinders.

Abstract

Using Morison's equation and the directional spectrum of surface waves, it is possible to create a stationary random process that is statistically equivalent to the random process of the force exerted by wind-generated waves on a rigid cylinder. This was validated by the results of two small-scale field experiments dealing with wave forces on truncated vertical cylinders and submerged horizontal cylinders.
