Are the viscous hydrodynamic forces and the nonlinear viscous hydrodynamic forces applied on offshor

    Are the viscous hydrodynamic forces and the nonlinear viscous hydrodynamic forces applied on offshore platform in the ocean? The platform is fixed.

    Just to expand on your question, there would be wave action and ocean currents acting upon the platform.

    Thank you! So,wave action and ocean currents acting upon the platform produce the viscous hydrodynamic forces and the nonlinear viscous hydrodynamic forces?

    Are you building a marine platform? Or a wind turbine out in the ocean?
    Environmental forces on a platform would be that resulting from mainly water and wind action.
    I am not sure how far of an answer you want with this, as it is a very complicated subject, as you would likely find out by searching on the web for viscous hydrodynamic forces on offshore platforms, or something similar.
