Formatted abstract As part of a long-term investigation of wave-generated currents, an attempt has been made to produce model waves with a crest-wise variation in wave-height. It was found that waves of the desired form could be generated with the aid of plate filters suitably installed in a wave basin.

Separate experiments were conducted with filters in a wave-flume to establish the rules governing their performance. It was found that the ratio of wave-heights before and after passage of a wave through a filter could be expressed as a simple function of filter geometry (within the range of heights and periods tested).

Only fair agreement was found between the flume and basin experiments, but it appeared that a set of standard curves for filter design could result from a more comprehensive range of tests
