In this paper, maximum wave loads and run-up heights around the columns of Offshore Wind Turbine (OWT) foundations for different types by adopting a normalized modulation parameter δˆ were preliminarily analyzed. In order to simulate the evolution of modulated wave groups, bichromatic waves were selected and validated by the experimental data of Tainan Hydraulics Laboratory. The accuracy of wave-structure interaction was also examined by comparing with the model tests of wave loads for the jacket support structure in the wave flume. The quasi-static force and the dynamic force would be separated by using the band-pass filter. In terms of the quasi-static force, it can be estimated by the monochromatic wave and be calibrated in the Morison's load formula. By means of the deconvolution method, the maximum force is well calculated for further obtaining the impact coefficient. The impact coefficients subject to δˆ for different OWT foundations were also summarized. Meanwhile, the normalized run-up heights around the columns of OWT foundations would be discussed qualitatively and quantitatively. Eventually, the impact coefficient and the normalized run-up height would be discussed according to the variation of the curling factor in different wave conditions.
