Abstract:

Laboratory data of kinematics of waves breaking on model beach are analyzed and resulting water particle velocities and accelerations are used in Morison-O'Brien-Johnson-Schaaf wave force theory to predict force field for piles of three different diameters; comparison of results with predictions from modified solitary wave theory are given.
