Abstract

The interaction between water waves and a horizontal plate was studied experimentally in the laboratory. The study looked at two basic areas; 1) The effect of the waves on the plate, in the form of uplift forces and 2) The effect the plate has on the wave field passing underneath. This was investigated through energy considerations in the wave spectra and the observation of changes in the average wave height before and after passing the plate.
