WAVE FORCES ON A DOCK,
CALIFORNIA UNIV BERKELEY HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING LAB
Pagination or Media Count:
The present investigation is concerned with the prediction of wave forces that act vertically on a horizontal deck under the action of periodic waves. Tests were made for a variety of clearances between the deck and the still water level, and for a variety of wave heights and periods. Although the structural behavior of the pier deck may affect the magnitude of the forces, in this investigation, it was assumed that the deck is infinitely rigid. Author
