Abstract : This report documents the Maneuvering and Seakeeping Basin wavemaker performance from 2004 to 2007. This report contains benchmark wave cases for comparison with future evaluations of the wavemaker performance. Fifteen data sets were examined for wave amplitude and frequency variability due to spatial position, season, and wavemaker repairs. Wave amplitude variability from wave cycle-to-cycle and between runs was also quantified. Excel macros were developed to aid future comparisons.
