AbstractA new engineering method on the coastal protection, "Artificial Marine Forest (AMF)" proposed by Liang et al. (2004) is composed by lots of tautly-moored floating structures (TMFS). The concept of this method is to establish a buffer zone between the shoreline and the sea area by building a dense forest to reduce the wave energy and protect the coast. When deploying a larger number of cylindrical floating bodies in the offshore region, the scene is similar to a marine forest.
