Abstract:

The report concerns the realistic simulation of irregular long-crested seas in the Harold E. Saunders Maneuvering and Seakeeping Facility. Random Gaussian seaways which approximated the Neumann spectral shape were produced for model testing by use of an electrohydraulic control system for wave generation. Techniques and difficulties associated with the use of an analog computer for wavemaker control are discussed. Plans for further development and extension to directional sea simulation are presented.
