Fale fenomenalne w żegludze morskiej

Freak waves in maritime navigation

Mirosław Jurdziński         


In this paper the passage process have been described in the areas where freak waves occur. The freak wave’s definition has been given and the evidence distributes and generation of the freak waves in different sea areas has shown. Some research programs focused on freak waves propagation occurrence and forecast have been presented. Finally some notes on the new ship design to increase the ship structure in the light of freak wave existence in shipping have been mentioned.


W pracy opisano proces planowania nawigacji w obszarach występowania fal fenomenalnych. Zdefiniowano fale fenomenalne, rejony i przyczyny ich powstawania. Przedstawiono kilka programów badawczych ukierunkowanych na propagację, występowanie i prognozowanie fal fenomenalnych. W zakończeniu wspomniano o konieczności wzmocnienia nowo budowanych kadłubów statków morskich z uwzględnieniem istnienia fal fenomenalnych.

Słowa kluczowe: 
propagacja falowania
planowanie nawigacji morskiej
