Abstract: Tests were performed in an oscillating water tunnel to determine the relationships between wave parameters and resulting bottom friction and shear stresses. The test results are presented in Stanton-type wave friction factor diagrams and results are compared with existing semitheoretical expressions. Transitions between flow regimes are also defined.
