How to deal with basin modes when generating irregular waves on shallow water
Modeling shallow-water waves in a basin with a finite length and width introduces challenges related to low-frequency (LF) waves. In this paper the observed basin mode frequencies during tests are compared to the theoretical values, and an overview of the unwanted LF wave content as a function of…
