ATTENUATION OF WAVE INDUCED OSCILLATION IN PORTS BY IMPROVING THE CONDITIONS AT THE HARBOR ENTRANCE

M. Kubo, S. Aoki, J.J. Avitia Segura

Abstract


The authors developed the numerical method to calculate the wave height distribution around a pair of breakwaters with arbitrary shape of the edge. The effect of the resonators equipped in the breakwaters on the diffracted wave height is simulated by using this method. Simulated results show that the resonators have remarkable effect to reduce wave heights in a harbor. However, in the experiments, resonators are not so effective as predicted by the theory.
