Abstract : Research on the development of a system to obtain and analyze data pertaining to the response of fixed structures to wind-generated water waves was performed at the University of Massachusetts Wind Wave Research Facility. The report reviews various systems that have been used elsewhere, describes the equipment available at the University of Massachusetts, outlines the systems that were considered, and details the actual system that was developed. Also included are operational procedures for collection and processing of the data and a summary of the results obtained from a series of tests performed with the system on a vertical cylindrical column.
