Material transportation and replenishment is the most basic way of offshore operation, and sea condition is the most important factor to determine the offshore operation. Therefore, it is very important to study the wave under different sea conditions for the operation of marine vessels. In this paper, the numerical flume is taken as the research object, and the irregular waves are produced by using the Computational Fluid Dynamics method on the FLUENT platform. And then, the irregular waves are classified by comparing with the standard of wave classification, which lays a foundation for the design of the ship wave compensation control system under the irregular waves.
