Wave propagation over obstacles



The data contained here is part of a set of experiments carried to understand
how regular obstacles will affect the propagation of waves. Experiments carried
consisted of a set of regular obstacles of measures 0.1m height, 1.6m width and
0.1m length.

The obstacles were placed in the bottom of a wave flume tank, wave trains were
produced and measured as they moved along the length of the tank. The waves were
measured after the wave-maker, before the obstacle, over the obstacle and after
the obstacle.

The measurements were done using a set of wave probes that recorded the water
surface displacement vs time. More information can be found in the readme file. Experiments were carried in two testing campaigns during 2019 and 2020.
