Keywords: surface waves, flexural-gravity waves, elastic plate, added masses, damping coefficients, eigenfrequencies and oscillation modes, the method of normal modes, integral equations, boundary element method


The problem of the interaction of surface and flexural-gravity waves with a vertical barrier is solved in a two-dimensional formulation. It is assumed that the fluid is ideal and incompressible, has infinite depth, and is partially covered with ice. The ice cover is modeled by an elastic plate of constant thickness. The eigenfrequencies and eigenmodes of oscillation of the floating elastic ice plate, the deflection and deformation of ice, and the forces acting on the wall are determined.
