Short-crested wave interaction with a concentric porous cylindrical structure
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, theoretical study is carried out to investigate the general 3D short-crested wave interaction with a concentric two-cylinder system. The interior cylinder is impermeable and the exterior cylinder is thin in thickness and porous to protect the interior cylinder. Both cylinders are surface-piercing and bottom mounted. Analytical solution is derived based on the linear potential theory. The effects of the wide range wave parameters and structure configuration including porosity of the exterior cylinder and the annular spacing on the wave forces, surface elevations and the diffracted wave contours are examined.
