Near Shore Test Center


To achieve a better understanding of extreme wave behavior and corresponding load on offshore structures, a large amount of statistical data is needed, to be able to improve anddevelop accurate models and design formulas for this.

Laboratory test has been carried out in scale 1:100, and to collect additionalstatistical wave data in better conditions, it has been suggested to establish a 1:10 scale Near Shore Test Center (NSTC).

The NSTC will be established at a suitable location with sea waves having properties that are comparable with the waves in the North Seawhen scaled.
