Scaled Experiments and Tool Validation

Measurement data is essential for the assessment of uncertainty of the design calculations. We are experienced in building scaled floating platforms, selecting sensors and conducting experiments. We ensure a stepwise validation, increasing the complexity of the load cases gradually.

  • Stepwise system identification
  • Streamlined test supervision
  • Uncertainty quantification of design loads

Get in touch with us to discuss the possibilities how we can support your experimental testing and model validation with our engineering expertise.
