STUDIES ON FIXED RECTANGULAR SURFACE BARRIER AGAINST SHORT WAVES

Ching-Her Hwang, Frederick L.W. Tang

Abstract


In short waves, the particle motion in deeper region are to be negligible. For rigid vertical breakwaters built in considerable deep water, the lower part of vertical wall does not play the vital role of wave defending. It can be replaced by a frame to support the surface barrier which bears the wave force, and remain vacancy of the lower part of breakwater. Hence the theoretical and experimental characteristics of wave transmission and spectra alternation are investigated respectively here for this kind of the fixed, rigid, rectangular surface barrier in order to obtain an economic section and verify its capable relative depth as the design basis of deep port breakwater.
