A field investigation programme on simultaneous wave force and water particle velocity measurements is decribed with reference to an inclined tubular member subjected to offshore wave kinematics. First measurements at supercritical Reynolds numbers indicate strong irregularities in successively taken pressure distributions on the circumference of the test section as well as in the velocity vectors. The influence of superimposed tidal currents is obvious.
