default wind/wave direction

Postby Krishnaveni.Balakrishnan » Mon Jul 22, 2019 7:23 am

I would like to know the default wind/wave direction with respect to mooring line in OC3 spar FOWT. When we say zero degree wind/wave direction does it mean that both wind and wave is in line with one of mooring line which is aligned with X axis .

Thanks
Krishnaveni
