Deepwater breaking wave forces on surface piercing structures

MITSG 85-5J

A preliminary experimental study of deep water breaking wave forces on a flat plate was conducted in a wave channel. Pressures were measured simultaneously at six vertical locations, for different horizontal locations of the plate relative to the break point, and for three inclinations to the vertical.
