Abstract

© 2003 World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte. Ltd. A numerical model has been developed to describe wave absorption, reflection and transmission arising from the interaction of long waves with a porous breakwater. The structure consists of a closely packed group of hollow tubes stacked with axes parallel to the bed and aligned in the direction of wave propagation. The model, based on the work of Sollit and Cross (1972) and developed for the limiting case of long waves, produces satisfactory agreement with experiments performed in a laboratory flume for a range of wave frequencies. Results from tests in the same facility on a horizontal, perforated plate device indicate that this form of wave absorber is extremely effective, particularly for relatively short waves.
