Pages: 401 - 408
The semicircular breakwater (SBW) is one of the varieties of breakwaters, which has emerged recently. The world's first semicircular breakwater has been constructed at Miyazaki port in Japan. The dynamic pressures due to regular waves exerted on a SBW with 7% of its seaside surface area with perforations were measured. The variations of dimensionless pressures for three different water depth (hw) to total height of the model (ht), ratios are presented and discussed in this paper. In addition, the reflection and transmission characteristics of the perforated SBW as a function of scattering parameter, ka is reported. The results on the above stated variables for a seaside perforated SBW are compared with the results for an impermeable SBW.
