The objective of this report is to report the overall view of this project,
Experimental Studies ofPerforated Plate Breakwaters until the end ofthis semester.
This report will discuss about the current status ofthe project and the theory used to
complete this project.
This study is done with the aim to carry out laboratory experiment using
various types of perforated plate and calculate the wave transmission and reflection
throughout the perforated plates. Several perforated plates will be used in the wave
flume ofthe Hydraulic Laboratory ofUTP to evaluate the validity ofthe existing
guides in the literature through systematic experiments. The fundamentals of this
project are the physical modeling and its application to coastal engineering.
For this project, the author focuses on detail study of wave characteristics
and the development ofperforated plate breakwater. Aseries of experiments using
the perforated plate was done inthe wave flume ofthe Hydraulic Laboratory ofUTP
to measure the reflection and transmission coefficients of wave through single and
doubleperforatedplate breakwater.
The first section ofthis report describes the background ofthe project as well
as theproblem statement. The objectives of project also described in thissection. All
relevant reading materials that used in the project will be discussed in second
section. That literature provides background information on the research question
and to identify what others have discovered about their finding. Inthe third and forth
section, the experimental setup and result will be described. It will contain the
procedure ofthis experiment and the tools/equipment used. This project requires to
doresearch and design work to tackle theproblems thathave encountered.
