Hydrodynamic wave forces on submerged horizontal plate.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A fully submerged horizontal plate has been suggested as a potential breakwater design. This paper examines wave scattering by a submerged horizontal plate using two approaches. The first approach uses the method of eigenfunction expansions to yield a semi-analytical solution, and the second uses the integral equation formulation. Numerical solutions are obtained by the boundary element method. The reflection coefficient and the transmission coefficient as well as the hydrodynamic forces and moment are calculated. The agreement between the analytical solution and the numerical is good. (from authors' abstract)
