This paper presents a wave response analysis of an elastic floating plate, of which a submerged horizontal plate is attached at the fore-end. The whole model is analyzed rigorously within the framework of the linear potential theory and the linear elasticity. The eigenfunction expansion matching method is employed to solve the hydrodynamic problem. The analytical results are compared with the experimental results. The agreement between the analytical results based on the linear potential theory and the experiment has been shown to be satisfactory, showing the significant effect of the submerged plate.
