LFCS Review report - Environmental conditions Wind, wave and current in coastal areas
MetadataShow full item record
A review is performed on the description of evironmental conditions in Norwegian coastal areas in relation to Large Floating Coastal Structures and the planning of long floating bridges across fjords. First, an outline of some geographic location of possible crossing sites in various fjords is documented along with some existing structures where work is ongoing for obtaining additional information. Then, a survey about the methods for studying wave, wind and current conditions in such environments is given. Finally, some gaps in existing methodologies are identified and recommendations are given. The work is performed as a part of the NRC and Industry‐sponsored KPN‐project “Design and Verification of Large Floating Coastal Structures – LFCS”.
