Abstract: Determination of height and pattern of waves diffracted by infinitely long breakwater, or by breakwater gap; correct results obtainable at distances in shadow zone many wavelengths from breakwater, but within area of three wavelengths results are erroneous; model tests for wave patterns with two different lengths of breakwater and waves of different steepnesses.
