The dynamic behaviour of ships and other floating structures can be determined experimentally using regular, random or transient waves for system excitation. Testing using transient waves is much less time consuming and greatly reduces tank wall interference phenomena. However, for reasons probably connected with the convenience, familiarity and ease of the testing procedure, transient wave testing is not yet used for routine experiments. A new, easy to apply technique for the generation of transient wave packets is proposed. The method has been successfully tried on ship models in a towing tank, moving or stationary, with very good results. In addition, the new method allows for the accurate determination of the concentration point of the waves. © 1994. (EN)
