Abstract

The Cruise Terminal of Rotterdam is situated at the river Maas in an urban area with both low-rise and high-rise buildings. Cruise ships navigating and mooring here interact with a complex wind flow field around these buildings. Rotterdam Port Authority wishes to know which wind conditions will cause the highest wind load on the cruise ships and how these wind loads can be predict-ed best. CFD simulations are performed and compared to locally obtained measurement data. Based on the CFD simulations a soft-ware application is developed to calculate the wind load on moored cruise ships based on wind speed and wind direction at a refer-ence measurement position.
