Serial Information: Journal of the Waterways and Harbors Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 2, Pg. 1-10

Document Type: Journal Paper


Study to provide information for design of structures supported on large-diameter vertical cylinders that are to be exposed to shallow-water wave action; laboratory data collected to determine pressure intensities on surface of vertical cylinder subjected to action of smooth waves and breaking waves of spilling type; results are presented through dimensionless parameters that include pertinent physical quantities.
