The efficiency of the structure is assessed in terms of the coefficient of transm ission as a function of the wave period and the location of the floating breakwater relative to the zone to be protected. Preliminary results conceming wave energy transmission reveals a clear improvement of the efficiency as wave period decreases andan important role ofthe bathymetry.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/12870||ISBN:||9781845647001||ISSN:||1743-3509||DOI:||10.2495/FSI130021||Source:||WIT Transactions on the Built Environment [ISSN 1743-3509], v. 129, p. 13-22||Rights:||by-nc-nd|
