Abstract: A method is presented for calculating the distribution of force and overturning moment resulting from incident water waves moving along the axis of a groin or jetty with vertical sides. Wave height at the structure is determined from experimental data on Mach-stem reflect on. The distribution of force is assumed to be in proportion to the nonlinear shallow-water wave profile given by either the cnoidal or stream-function wave theory. An example problem demonstrates how the cnoidal theory may be used to estimate the wave force and overturning moment distribution along a structure.
