Abstract

This review paper is aimed at providing information on and at explaining the appropriate use of models in the design of marine structures. Emphasis is placed on the derivation of scaling laws and on limitations of accuracy. Similitude, dimensional analysis and the use of governing equations in model experiment scaling are explained before addressing the modelling of some common ocean engineering tests.
