SCATTERING OF WAVES BY TWO-DIMENSIONAL CIRCULAR OBSTACLES IN FINITE WATER DEPTHS

The wave forces on a fixed two-dimensional object submerged in water of finite depth are obtained under the assumptions of linear wave theory. The far-field characteristics of the wave interaction with the object are also examined. The boundary-value problem for the wave potential is formulated in terms of Green's theorem, and the resulting integral equation is solved numerically. Results for a submerged and half-submerged circular cylinder and a bottom-seated half cylinder are presented. In the limiting case of infinite depth the numerical results compare quite well with known solutions.
