WAVE RUNUP ON VERTICAL CYLINDERS
As a wave passes a vertical cylinder, its shape, including its height, is affected by the presence of the cylinder. The purpose of the paper is to present measurements of wave height very near the surface of cylinders of selected cross sections. These experiments are motivated by the possibility that the wave height distribution around a cylinder can be used to measure wave direction. The height data in this paper are for periodic laboratory water waves propagating in one direction.
