REGULAR WAVE EFFECTS ON WALLS MADE OF CYLINDERS

The results of wave action on walls made of closely spaced cylindrical cells 10 to 20 m in diam with both vertical and chamfered superstructures. The waves, wall dimensions, and water depth in front of the walls were subject to large-scale changes. The total wave force which acts on the cylinder with vertical superstructure is approximately equal to that acting on the corresponding length of the plane vertical wall. In case of chamfered superstructure, the total force is essentially decreased. The wave pressures are variably distributed around the cylinder surface and depend upon wave steepness.
