Abstract

A directional wavemaker theory has been developed by Dalrymple to produce a desired oblique planar wave train at any cross-section in the basin. This theory, which used the reflections from the sidewalls of the basin, can also account for slowly varying depths. This paper described a numerical validation of this theory, for the constant depth situation, by a wave diffraction model that was recently verified through an extensive series of experimental investigations.
