Ocean wave transmission, reflection and absorption by rows of vertical structures along the coastline

  title={Ocean wave transmission, reflection and absorption by rows of vertical structures along the coastline},
  author={Alexis M{\'e}rigaud and Benjamin Thiria and Ramiro Godoy-Diana},
Large arrays of wave-absorbing structures could serve the double objective of coastal protection against erosion and clean, renewable electrical power production. In this work, the principle of an artificial canopy is explored, which consists of vertical structures, arranged in rows parallel to the coastline. Sea waves, which propagate towards the shore, interact with the obstacle rows. A part of the wave energy is reflected back towards the ocean, another part is transmitted to the shoreline… 


A wide-spacing approximation model for the reflection and transmission of water waves over an array of vertical obstacles
Abstract With a view to numerical modelling and optimisation of wave energy farms, a simple recursive formulation is employed to solve for the reflection and transmission of plane water waves by a
The interaction of water waves with a long linear array of offshore breakwaters is examined to determine the reflection and transmission coefficients for these structures, providing data on the
Surface-wave propagation over sinusoidally varying topography
Surface waves travelling in water of finite depth may be scattered by a region of undulating bottom topography. The present study is concerned with the idealized two-dimensional situation in which
Surface wave energy absorption by a partially submerged bio-inspired canopy.
This paper studies an array of partially-submerged flexible structures that are subjected to the action of a surface wave field, investigating in particular the role of spacing between the elements of the array on the ability of the system to absorb energy from the flow.

Future designs of systems for power extraction from ocean waves will likely involve a periodic array of absorbing units. We report an asymptotic theory of scattering and radiation by a linear array
Water waves over arrays of horizontal cylinders : band gaps and Bragg resonance
The existence of a band-gap structure associated with water waves propagating over infinite periodic arrays of submerged horizontal circular cylinders in deep water is established. The cases of waves
Converting wave energy from fluid-elasticity interactions
Understanding the mechanisms involved in wave-structure interactions is of high interest for the development of efficient wave energy harvesters as well as for coastal management. In this thesis, we
Measurements of wind-wave growth and swell decay during the Joint North Sea Wave Project (JONSWAP)
"Wave spectra were measured along a profile extending 160 kilometers into the North Sea westward from Sylt for a period often weeks in 1968 and 1969. During the main experiment in July 1969, thirteen
