WAVE INDUCED OSCILLATIONS OF HARBORS WITH VARIABLE DEPTH

F. Raichlen, E. Naheer

Abstract


A numerical method is presented to treat the wave-induced oscillations of a harbor with a variable depth and width. A two-dimensional finite difference approach is used inside the harbor matched at the entrance to a solution for the open-sea based on the Helmholtz Equation which includes incident, reflected, and radiated wave energy. Examples of the response and the modal shapes of the water surface are presented for harbors with simple and complex shapes.
