This study was done to determine horizontal design forces on a submerged wave-energy structure in relatively shallow water. Experimental data was compared with calculated horizontal force values. Trends in the experimental data compared favorably with calculations, and formed the basis for design forces in a range of water depth to structure height ratios for which previous data has not been published.
