Abstract

Experimental research to the influence of the air pressure on the impact pressure cause by breaking waves.

The research shows that there are three factors which load the structure during the breaking of waves: the water layer over the structure, the shock due to the impact of the water jet from breaking and the air pocket entrapped in the water mass. The influence of all of the factors is determined.
