COMBINED REFRACTION-DIFFRACTION CALCULATIONS WITH DIRECTIONAL WAVE SPECTRA

P. Gaillard

Abstract


A method of calculation of the combined effects of wave refraction, diffraction and reflection in harbours of arbitrary shape and non uniform water depth, subject to periodic or random waves is presented. Examples of application are given and practical aspects on the wave spectrum discretisation are considered.

Keywords
