AbstractThe present paper documents the experiences of the Hydraulics Laboratory of the National Research Council of Canada in the model testing of offshore structures in general, and tension leg platforms in particular. In Part I, the experimental test facility setup for the generation of the wind loading, currents, and wave conditions is described. Techniques for the synthesis and calibration of regular and irregular long-crested waves, and multidirectional waves are discussed in detail. The description ofthe model construction, associated instrumentation and data processing methods is presented in Part II of this paper.
