Abstract:
Wave induced ship motions are a problem for many operations at sea. Think of lifting operations with floating cranes, or landing a helicopter on a ship. No one can tell when large waves and resulting ship motions will occur, so the crew always has to be prepared.

In practice this means large safety margins: operations are only done in benign wave conditions when the probability of large waves is sufficiently low.

During his doctoral research, Peter Naaijen considered another option: Future Telling… Although it sounds somewhat magic, his research lead to strong proof that it is possible to predict some minutes in advance exactly what waves will arrive at the ship and how the ship will react to those. Drop by if you want to know how…
