Criteria of wave breaking onset and its variability in irregular wave trains

Mayumi Louise Wilms
Wave breaking is a random process that causes extreme hydrodynamic loads on offshore structures which lead to structural degradation and destruction. The majority of studies in literature analysed single wave breaking events in (quasi-)monochromatic wave trains and focused on energy dissipation and slamming forces on structures. Due to the random nature of wave breaking, its parameters vary widely and cannot be predicted with an exact value at a future instant of time, but instead must...
