Regions with high-energy wave environments, such as the Hawaiian Islands, can experience wave-induced erosion that impacts coastal infrastructure. Structures such as pile breakwaters and other slotted/perforated structures have been proposed to dissipate the wave energy. The thickness of these structures is very small compared with the wavelength so they can be regarded as thin-walled structures. In this talk, I will present some preliminary results obtained using an Eigen-function matching method to study two classical problems related to such types of breakwaters: (i) wave scattering by a curtain-type breakwater, and (ii) wave scattering by a vertical slotted wave barrier. Potential applications of the method and codes developed for future work will be discussed.
