Higher order waves

Hi, Is it possible to generate higher order waves in Q-blade?


currently, its not possible to model nonlinear waves.

However, nonlinear wave functionality will be included in the next release (2.0.7) of QBlade through the integration of CN-Stream, developed at LHEEA ECN.

Besides the generation and evaluation of nonlinear waves we will also include a “constrained nonlinear wave” feature for irregular seas, similar to this work: P.J. Rainey, T.R. Camp, 2007, “Constrained non-linear waves for offshore wind turbine design”.
