Animation of ClubStead in 15 foot waves

The next trickle from our engineering wrap-up: a video of the ClubStead design in a hydrodynamic simulation of movement in 15′ waves.

  1. Great video, definitely… but I do have one concern with a structure like this, and hence, probably, a focus put on breakwaters:

    There seems to be quite a lot of heft on the out edges as some of those waves go through.  I’m not sure of all the dimensions involved, but I think some of those up and down movements there could be ten feet in a matter of a few seconds.  It would definitely be less movement the closer you moved to the center, but I definitely wouldn’t be taking up jogging the perimeter in the mornings with reactions to swells like that.
