METHOD OF ANALYSIS OF RANDOM WAVE EXPERIMENTS WITH REFLECTING COASTAL STRUCTURES

Pierre Gaillard, Michel Gauthier, Forrest Holly

Abstract


A method of evaluation of the incident and reflected wave spectra in laboratory experiments or field investigations, based on the analysis of wave records obtained with a three-gauge array, is presented. Results of a laboratory investigation with a rubble-mound breakwater and with a special type of sea-wall (ARC system) are given to illustrate the applications of the method.
