Sammendrag
Recently, a method for numerical reproduction of measured irregular wave events has been developed. The measured motion of the wave maker flaps defines the wave kinematics at the boundary of the numerical simulation in order to generate the waves as described in (Pakozdi, Kendon, & Stansberg, 2011) and (Ostman, Pakozdi, Stansberg, Fagertun, & Vestbostad, 2015). When such data are not available, the control signal of the wave maker can, instead, be generated from a given free surface elevation following the same procedure as in model tests. Following this procedure automatically gives the possibility to subsequently reproduce the numerical wave experimentally using the obtained control signal. The latter procedure is applied to a model test case with extreme irregular wave events and resulting nonlinear global wave loads on a vertical cylinder (Stansberg, 1997), with the focus on higher-order ringing excitation. The purpose of the investigation is two-fold: 1) to validate the wave reconstruction procedure, and 2) to validate the resulting CFD ringing loads with the given waves. The results show generally good agreement both in the waves and in the loads; discrepancies found in the loads are considered to be mainly originating from corresponding uncertainties in the wave reconstruction. Wave breaking may be one source of uncertainty.
