Abstract

The diffraction of water waves occurs whenever sharp changes in wave heights occur, such as when a wave passes through a gap in a breakwater. For this case, the wave height change is primarily along the wave crest and it results in the waves turning into the region sheltered by the breakwater. This paper is to examine this question in the light of the recent advances in water wave propagation modelling.
