AN INCLINED-PLATE WAVE GENERATOR

Frederick Raichlen, Jiin-Jen Lee

Abstract


A numerical method for determining the characteristics of waves generated by a hinged inclined-plate wave generator operating in a constant depth channel is discussed. The analysis is in reasonably good agreement with experimental results. The results indicate the sloping generator operating under certain conditions is completely inefficient, i.e., for a given stroke and depth-to-wave-length ratio, very small waves are produced; for other wave periods for the same conditions significantly larger waves are generated.
