Offshore 2D spectrum, with separated wave partitions

CDR has performed a wave assessment for the for the following items:

  • Analyses of operational and extreme offshore wind and wave data;
  • Nearshore wave transformation study, to derive the operational wave conditions at the location of the breakwater. The study will take the propagation of multiple swell components and the generation of wind-waves from offshore to the project site in account;
  • Analyses of extreme wave conditions at the project site for extreme event return periods of 1:1, 1:10, 1:50, 1:100, 1:200 and 1:1000 yr at various locations around the breakwater.
