Ports that are affected by long wave energy may experience occasions of vessel surge – causing disruption to marine operations and compromises the safety of people and assets.
Research at numerous energetic ports worldwide has led to the development of unique numerical tools to quantify the problem and examine possible solutions. Long wave generation, propagation into the harbour and resonance within a mooring basin can be effectively examined with innovative numerical techniques.
Predictive techniques have been successfully implemented at 10 ports worldwide, providing 7-day forecasts of long wave surge conditions, along with well defined operational thresholds.
MetOcean Solutions regularly undertakes study programs to examine:
- Wave penetration and reflection
- Wave climate and propagation
- Harbour resonance and mitigation studies
