WAVE FORCES ON PILE SECTIONS DUE TO IRREGULAR AND REGULAR WAVES

Wave action on pile-sections and entire piles has been studied. Twenty-nine waves and ten spectra were generated and the corresponding forces were measured. The obstacle was a single verticle pile with three force-meters located at different levels. For regular waves, most of the results can be justified by use of added mass and drag coefficients values from the Keulegan and Carpenter relationship. For irregular waves, a good fit between measured data and computer values was obtained for spectral analysis (L.E.Borgman method). Orbital velocity measurements are necessary for interpreting full-scale studies.
