Wind tunner test for offshore platform
Is it realistic to use CFD to replace the wind tunnel test to estimate wind load coefficients of an offshore platform(above water line part)?
This may arrive a little late as a response but I have been working on a CFD solver to simulate scenarios that incorporate models for
So my answer to your question is rather, can experiments replace simulation models?
(PS: You can have a look at my company, CAEbridge, LLC, website to get an idea of the state of the art simulation capabilities for modeling floating vessels, including offshore platforms.)
