Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract:

Exact theory of diffraction of water gravity waves by semi-infinite (one arm) breakwater in water of constant depth is put in more useful form for case of waves incident at any angle between 0 and 180 °; graphs and tables are presented for practical use; they can also be used for approximate solution of case of detached breakwater.
