Waves tested were 5 ft, 8s, 2.5 ft 8s, 5 ft 5 s, and 2.5 ft 5s (results are listed in that order).
There are two ways of looking at transmission coef: wave height past the structure compared to incident wave ht (Ct), or wave height past the structure compared to wave height at the same location past the structure but without the structure present (Kt). Waves were measured offshore (gauges 1,2,3) and past the structure (gauges 4,5,6).
Note that gauge 1 became flooded near the end of the tests and the data is wrong. Gauges 1, 2, and 3 should read almost the same, where Gauge 1 is markedly different, don't use it.
