PRESSURE OF WAVES AGAINST VERTICAL WALLS

M.E. Plakida

Abstract


This paper is concerned with the study of the breaking wave pressure exerted upon the breakwater of the vertical type. The method of calculation of the wave pressure, named the quasistatical method, is based with the theory of the impact of the water jet en the vertical plane and some new results of the experimental data. The formulas for the calculation of the pressure distribution of the breaking wave and the surf wave on the vertical wall are given.
