  • Diffraction is an important factor in the determination of the distribution of wave energy within a harbor, and therefore is of importance in harbor design. Previous investigations in this field have made use of Sommerfeld's solution of the diffraction of waves by a semiinfinite screen to obtain results for semiinfinite breakwaters, and by superposition, approximate results for continuous breakwaters with openings large compared to the wave length. The investigation of this subject by the… CONTINUE READING
