Abstract

Highlights • Published theory for maximum wave power absorption width of flexible line attenuators was clarified. • Example of wave-like body deformation was explicitly treated. • Case equivalent to optimal combination of cosine and sine modes for wavelengths smaller than about one and a half the body length. • Case equivalent to cosine mode for very long wavelengths.
