Physical wave basin tests with a focus on uncertainty estimation have been conducted on a sphere subjected to wave loads at Aalborg University as part of the effort of the OES Wave Energy Converters Modelling Verification and Validation (formerly, OES Task 10) working group to increase credibility of numerical modelling of WECs. The tests are referred to as the Kramer Sphere Cases, and the present note is dealing with wave excitation force tests on a fixed model. The present note is including details to facilitate CFD models which replicates the physical setup in detail.
