In light of prominent needs of practice, great attention in the Soviet Union is concentrated on investigation of standing waves. Numerical values of irregular wave action on a rigid vertical wall are shown not to differ markedly from those of the regular waves, which is supported by field investigation data. Similarly, of great interest is the problem concerning elaboration of more sophisticated methods of computation of regular wave pressure upon a vertical wall. The equations of third-order approximation obtained by the deterministic wave theories are proved to be most suitable for the design purposes. A comparative analysis of calculation values and experimental results was made for 79 wave regimes the data by other researchers being used. The integral and differential energy characteristics of high standing waves are studied in great detail.
