WAVE FIELD BEHIND THE PERMEABLE DETACHED BREAKWATER

Shan-Hwei Ou, Shiaw-Yih Tzang, Tai-Wen Hsu

Abstract


Based on the concept of linear superposition, the model for combined wave refraction and diffraction developed by Liu et al. is extended to the situation of permeable detached breakwaters in a slowly varying water depth. Two cases are investigated which include a semi-infinite permeable breakwater and a single permeable breakwater. Laboratory results with a particular transmission coefficient in a wave basin are used to compare with the theoretical results. Fair agreements are found.
