Wave Generator

Wave generation system hardware

The systems are fatigue rated and designed with low noise production, a long lifespan and high serviceability (low maintenance and ease of access) in mind. To ensure high motion accuracy the systems encompass:

  • High dynamical stiffness
  • Backlash-free operation
  • Closed loop servo control

Maximum wave height

The height of the waves that can be generated is limited by water depth, wave steepness, overtopping and maximum segment stroke and velocity.

Example wave height

An indication is given for the maximum wave height capability for a piston-type wave generator with 1.0m stroke and 1.0m water depth.
