Abstract: The Floating Breakwater Prototype Test Program (FBPTP) was initiated in 1981 in an effort to develop design criteria for floating breakwater applications in lakes, reservoirs, and semi-protected coastal waters. Some of the objectives of the program were to (a) determine the most effective breakwater design for a given wave climate; (b) establish the forces and moments which act on floating structures and their anchoring systems; and (c) determine loads on connecting mechanisms between individual breakwater modules. This paper describes analysis techniques used to reduce prototype data related to the above objectives.
