Abstract

This paper presents a general solution for wave scattering by stationary objects, which consist of a submerged rectangular plate and a floating rectangular dock. The objects can be either permeable or solid. The general solution is capable to cover all the existing single rectangular objects, such as a surface-piercing breakwater, a bottom-mounted submerge breakwater and a submerged plate. Furthermore, this general solution can also yield new analytical solutions for different combinations of objects, i.e. a single floating breakwater, and a combination of a floating and a bottom-mounted breakwater. Based on the general theory, a MATLAB computer program has been developed. It can be used to further explore different breakwater configurations with different properties.
