Analysis of vertical pressure load exerted on horizontal RC plates by wave impact

Goran Lončar, Dalibor Carević, Damir Bekić

Abstract

The analysis of dynamic pressure load exerted on the caisson structure bottom cover plate subjected to wave action is presented and illustrated by the example of Zagreb Pier in the Port of Rijeka. In addition to physical model measurements, empirical models are applied using input data from the linear wave theory and numerical model. The reliability of the applied methodology is assessed through comparison of measured and modelled values. The best correspondence between the measured and modelled results is obtained using the linear wave theory and the Kaplan's (1995) empirical model.

Keywords
wave forces, horizontal plate, physical model, numerical model
