Abstract: This paper examines the results of physical model studies conducted in a monochromatic wave flume, to evaluate the wave transmission characteristics of a submerged plate breakwater consisting of a fixed plate of 0.50 m length and 0.003 m thickness. The model was oriented at varying inclinations and submergence. The influence of wave steepness, relative depth, relative submergence and angle of inclination on wave transmission was analysed. It was found that the horizontal plate is effective for short waves with steepness parameter higher than 5 10-3 in relative depth grater than 0.21. The plate oriented at an angle of inclination of 60 is found to be effective for the entire ranges of wave parameters considered for the study and it reduces the wave height by about 40%. 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
