Abstract


One of the most powerful tools to analyze the boundary-value problems in water wave motion is the Green's function. However, to derive the Green's function which satisfies the imposed boundary conditions is sometimes difficult or impossible, especially in variable water depth. In this paper, a simple method of numerical analyses for two-dimensional boundary-value problems of small amplitude waves is proposed, and the wave transformation by fixed horizontal cylinders as an example of fixed boundaries, the wave transformation by and the motion of a cylinder floating on water surface as example of oscillating boundaries and the wave transformation by permeable seawall and breakwater as example of permeable boundaries are calculated and compared with experimental results.
