Wave interaction with submerged flexible porous breakwater

On flume COI3 of LNEC’s experimental facilities, a study of the performance of different types of horizontally floating/ submerged flexible membranes for incident waves reflection and transmission is being carried out. 

This study is part of the PhD work of Yuchan Guo at CENTEC (Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon), entitled "Wave interaction with submerged flexible porous breakwater”.

The effects of wave period, wave height, porosity of the membrane, different edge conditions (eg. such as fixed edge and spring-moored edge), depth of submergence of the membrane, and different number of membranes are studied.
