Abstract

A rigid floating breakwater, with different mooring cable arrangements, was tested under wave attack in the laboratory. The influence of water level changes on the structure was also tested. Results regarding the performance of the floating breakwater (transmission coefficient) and the anchoring system (peak mooring forces) in two dimensional conditions are reported. Notes the importance of mooring cable elasticity in evaluating the dynamic performance.
