Wave Dissipation and Reflection on Muddy Bottoms

This paper presents a new method to separate damped incident and reflected waves propagating over a muddy bottom and to estimate associated dissipation ratios from simultaneous recordings of wave profiles. On the basis of the resolution results, the reflection coefficient of the structure is estimated. The resolution technique is verified by an agreement with numerical experiments, and the technique is modified to improve the accuracy. Using recorded wave data, the analysis examined wave-damping ratios predicted by mud motion theory under regular waves. This, both numerical and laboratory experiments verify the resolution techniques.
