WAVE HEIGHT DISTRIBUTION AROUND PERMEABLE BREAKWATERS

Shintaro Hotta

Abstract


By superimposing solutions due to Sommerfeld, a calculation was made to obtain the wave height distribution around permeable breakwaters in a constant water depth. The cases dealt with were a semi-infinite breakwater, a single relatively large gap in a long breakwater and a single detached breakwater all with incident waves normal to the breakwater. Some cases were verified through experiments in a shallow water basin.
