THE PROBABILITY CHARACTERISTICS OP WAVES AND WAVE PRESSURES AT A VERTICAL BREAKWATER

Huang Peiji, Zhao Binglai

Abstract


In this paper, under the condition of waves in front of a breakwater being not broken, studies were made on the characterises of probability distribution of waves and wave pressures, the regularity of the spectral component attenuation with depth and the constitution of the high frequency band of wave pressure spectrum. The distributions of wave heights in front of a vertical breakwater, the range of wave pressure fluctuation at different subsurface levels, and the wave periods have shown that they are practically invariable with depth and can be determined theoretically. The spectral constitution of wave pressure field and the regularity of attenuation of spectral components were analyzed at the vertical breakwater, and a new expression describing the equilibrium range of wave pressure spectrum was obtained.
