In this paper, wave diffraction by a harbour is studied by the scaled boundary finite-element method (SBFEM). The semi-analytical approach, with the combined advantages of both finite-element and boundary-element methods, is based on linear wave theory and is applicable to harbours of circular arc profile. The whole solution domain is divided into one unbounded subdomain and one bounded sub-domain by the profile of the harbour. The effects of the incident wave angle and the opening angle of the harbour are discussed. Discretising only the circumference of the harbour, the current semi-analytical SBFEM model exhibits excellent computational accuracy and efficiency. The technique can be extended to solve more practical wave-structure interaction problems with increased complexity.
