IMPACT WAVE FORCES ON VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL PLATE

S.R. Massel, M. Oleszkiewicz, W. Trapp

Abstract


The hydrodynamic impact problem is a very difficult problem because the physics of what actually happens during the instant of impact are not understood. Despite of fact that a large number of references exist on the subject, many questions are left unanswered. The object of this research is to investigate the problems of hydrodynamic impact associated with the water waves impacting on the vertical and horizontal plates..Of particular interest are the impact forces, their relation to the incident wave parameters and scale effect problems.

Keywords


impact force; horizontal plate; vertical plate
