Abstract

Propagation of nonlinear waves of solitary and cnoidal type over a submerged horizontal, fixed flat plate is studied. The nonlinear and unsteady Green-Naghdi equations (Level I) are solved to estimate the pressure distribution on top and bottom of the plate and the wave-induced vertical and horizontal forces. Results are compared with the available laboratory experiments. A parametric study is conducted to find an expression for the shallow water wave-induced loads on the structure based on the structure geometry and wave characteristics.
