This report presents the results of a laboratory investigation of wave height measurements at an isolated pile. The investigation was motivated by the possibility that wave transformation near a pile can be used to measure nearshore wave directions. Twelve different vertical piles were tested, including circular, circular with radial fins, and various H-sections.
