Field measurementsof breaking wave loads ona shoreline wave power station G.Muller, PhD, MSc, and T. T.Whittaker, PhD, MRINA J. W A wave loadmonitoring system for the Islay prototype wave power station was designed andinstalled. The monitoring system comprises a transducer module which houses five transducers and a selective data acquisition system. The system has been operationalsince January 1991. Six major storms with a duration of 24 days were monitored.So far, 2326 data records weretaken and a maximum pressure of 51.3 kN/m', corresponding to 12% of the design pressure,was measured...
