Assessment of wave reduction effect of anchored pier type floating structure for berth
Anchored pier type floating structure is combined by a pontoon and two pile piers and this pontoon can move up and down during variation of water level. This is a new structure for berth and not only is the export and import area but also is floating breakwater for wave reduction. This paper presents the research on assessment of wave reduction effect of anchored pier type floating structure by analyzing 3-D numerical model (Ansys Aqwa program). The research results were compared with traditional wave theories and proved significant wave reduction of this structure.
Keywords: anchored pier type floating structure; wave reduction; FEM.
