AbstractRecently the south-west side trenches under and in front of the wave makers in the OEB have been permanently filled-up to provide a homogeneous bottom and uniform water depth all over the basin. This work is to understand the improvement of the wave quality after the floor work. Two sets of experimental data comprised of mono- and bi-chromatic waves before and after the floor work are compared to identify the impact of the development work on the wave generation and propagation in the OEB. Results are compared between the measured wave data, before and after the floor work in the OEB. Results are shown in terms of surface elevations and wave energies propagations for measured waves, primary waves, bounded waves and unwanted second order free waves. In most of the cases it is observed from the results that the shallower the wave the better the wave quality after the floor work.
