Tropical Storm Modelling

Aktis Hydraulics regularly provides design wind wave and current conditions in cyclone areas. These conditions are usually extremes but, in some areas, cyclones occur frequently enough to have a significant effect on the operational statistics. We have a range of tools and databases available to deal with project phases between site selection and detailed design.

Aktis is practiced in making the balance between the quality of the available data and the level of the sophistication of the modelling, considering not only the modelling uncertainties but also the statistical ones. Sophisticated numerical modelling delivers great results if it is coupled with an understanding of the frequency of the storms modelled as well as the sensitivity to the storm track.
