Results from tests in waves and simulated current on a scale model of a deep water (600m) production riser are compared with results from time domain computer simulations. Values are presented for drag, added mass, and inertia coefficients of the model, which have been deduced from the test results. While the values of drag coefficient found in test cases in pure current were those predicted from the Reynolds number at which the tests were carried out, the values from cases involving waves were typical of post critical flow.
