This document reviews the experimental work performed on wave particle kinematics and fluid loading in the context of the design of fixed offshore structures. It compares various methods (spectral, deterministic etc) of estimating loading conditions for extreme and fatigue strength calculations and describes the sensitivity of the calculations to various fluid loading parameters.
