A COMPARISON OF ANALYSIS METHODS FOR WAVE PRESSURE DATA

Murray Townsend, John D. Fenton

Abstract


A comparison of a range of wave pressure analysis methods has been conducted using both numerical data generated by a Fourier steady wave method and experimental data gathered in a wave flume. The results show that the local methods (local sinusoid approximations and local polynomial approximations) are more accurate than the traditional global linear spectral method. A new local polynomial approximation method shows improvement compared to similar methods developed previously.
