Abstract

The effect of edge shapes on the piston mode response in a narrow gap formed between two identical fixed floating boxes is investigated by means of wave flume tests. The experimental results confirmed that the edge shape has significant effects on the resonant wave height and resonant frequency. The maximum response amplitude and the resonance frequency increase with the increase of the roundness of gap entrance corners. The maximum resonant wave height for the curved entrance corner cases is more than 7 times higher than the incident wave height while it is about 5 times for the sharp-corner case. Energy dissipation is thought to be the cause for the observed edge shape effects.
