© 2019 by the authors. Monopiles able to support very large offshore wind turbines are slender structures susceptible to nonlinear resonant phenomena. With the aim to better understand and model the wave-loading on these structures in very steep wave...

Comparison of hydrodynamic loading models for vertical cylinders in nonlinear waves (2017)
Journal Article
Mockute, A., Marino, E., Lugni, C., & Borri, C. (2017). Comparison of hydrodynamic loading models for vertical cylinders in nonlinear waves. Procedia Engineering, 199, 3224-3229. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.proeng.2017.09.329

This paper introduces a comparison study between various hydrodynamic loading models in highly nonlinear waves and discusses its first phase - comparing Morison equation and Rainey corrections on a fixed cylinder in regular steep waves. In this study... Read More about Comparison of hydrodynamic loading models for vertical cylinders in nonlinear waves.
