Abstract

This study is concerned with the diffraction of nonlinear waves by in-line, fixed, vertical, circular
cylinders in shallow water. The solitary and conical wave-structure interaction problem is studied
by use of the nonlinear Level I Green-Naghdi equations and the nonlinear generalised Boussinesq
equations. The problem is also solved by the linearized version of the equations to study the nonlinear
effects. Results are compared with laboratory measurements.
