Wave and Tide Prediction for Brunei Deep-Water Operation

Grant Details: UBD/RSCH/1.11/FICBF(b)/2020/004 Reliable and accurate predictions of deep-water wave conditions is crucial for any ocean engineering activities, for example, safe ship navigation, design of marine structures (like oil platforms and harbours), and design and management of marine energy systems as it has an impact on human safety, economics and clean energy production. Different empirical, numerical and soft-computing approaches have been proposed for wave height prediction. Wave conditions in regions where historical data is available and collected can be predicted using numerical and soft-computing methods. However, for new regions of interest, in this case Brunei sea, historical data of wave conditions is not available. Hence, there is a need for collecting and predicting the wave conditions data in Brunei sea. This project will employ advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and modelling methods to improve the accuracy of the wave conditions prediction.
