The spatial periodic function is considered in the investigation of the water waves interaction with the row of evenly spaced vertical cylinders under the assumption that the incident of wave direction is arbitrary. The effect of the presence of neighboring cylinders on the wave force on a given cylinder is derived and the equivalent mass coefficients are calculated. The theory is compared with past experimental results on the inertia-predominant wave force and the transmission coefficient through the barrier.
