Questions of Technique of Laboratory Wave Studies in Port Water Areas Enclosed by Protective Structures

In determining the wave regime in the water areas of ports with different directions and parameters of the initial waves special attention must be devoted to questions concerning the technique used in laboratory studies on large-scale spatial models in order to obtain trustworthy and reliable results.
