A computer controlled random wave generator

Rouillard, Vincent (1991) A computer controlled random wave generator. Coursework Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.


Simulation of ocean wave processes and model studies related to marine technology are areas of increasing economic and environmental importance. Sophisticated laboratory facilities are needed to model ocean wave phenomena under controlled conditions. This thesis describes the techniques and principles employed in the design, commissioning and evaluation of a computer controlled random wave generation facility devised to accurately simulate spectral wave models.
