Wave Drift Force Coefficients


Raul Redondo, Raul Atienza, Juan Carlos Carmona, Siport21



Authors' note: This paper assesses the influence of wave drift forces for the design of navigable areas in ports or harbours subject to high swell waves in terms of resources required for the manoeuvres, as well as in the area occupied by the vessels during the transit in approach channels.

The influence of wave drift forces coefficients in the assessment of navigable areas of ports and harbours exposed to high waves. Nowadays, operators and terminals want to increase operational limits and for that reason wave limits are increasing to significant wave heights over three and four meters in exposed approach channels, which increases the difficulty of the manoeuvres and therefore the design requirements of the navigable areas both in vertical and horizontal dimensions…
