Wave loading linearization for offshore structures
Date of Original Version
The linearization of Morison-type wave loading is to replace u|u| by cu, where u is a zero mean, stationary Gaussian random process and c is a constant. In the present study an optimal linearization is proposed, in which the coefficient c is chosen in such a way that the statistics of structural response calculated from the linearized force will be identical to that calculated from the originally non-linear force.
