Abstrakt

Existing active absorption systems do not take into account the spurious waves caused by the segmentation of the wavemaker. Thus, the theoretical estimated performance curves for oblique waves are only valid for infinitely narrow segments. In the present paper, it is demonstrated that by ignoring the spurious waves, an unstable system might be designed for box‐mode paddles (piecewise constant segmentation). For vertical hinged pistons (piecewise linear segmentation), the results are the opposite, as the stability of the system is improved at high frequencies when a finite paddle width is considered. It is also shown that finite discretization leads to a directional influence in the system, even for a pseudo‐3D active absorption system. This effect is more pronounced for vertical hinged systems compared to box‐mode paddles.
