This paper presents the application of phase averaging to experimental data obtained during scale model testing of a forward facing bent duct oscillating water column (OWC). Phase averaging is applied to both wave probe data and a two-dimensional velocity field at the centerline plane of the OWC model obtained using particle imaging velocimetry (PIV). Results are presented for one monochromatic wave condition. The influence of varied wave frequency is briefly discussed.
