    Abstract

    To determine forces on fixed and flexible structures such as wind mills and oil platforms, experiments in wave tanks are useful to investigate the impacts in various types of environmental waves. In this paper we show that the use of an efficient simulation code can optimize the experiments by designing the influx such that waves will break at a predefined position of the structure. The consecutive actual measurements agree well with the numerical design of the experiments. Using the measured elevation close by the wave maker as input, the software recovers the experimental data in great detail, even for rather short (up to L/D=1) and very steep breaking waves with steepness parameter (ak) till 0.4. The experiments were carried out in the TUD-wavetank and the simulation is done by HaWaSSI-AB, a spatial-spectral implementation of a Hamiltonian Boussinesq model with an eddy-viscosity breaking mechanism that is initiated by a kinematic breaking condition.
