The spectral analysis from experimental data of irregular wave impact on the structures with large dimension in the splash zone is presented. The experiments were conducted in the large wave-current tank in the State Key Laboratory of Coastal and Offshore Engineering, Dalian University of Technology. In the experiment, the target spectrum is JONSWAP spectrum, the significant wave height H1/3 is in the range from 0.1m to 0.3m, and the peak period of spectrum Tp in the range from 1.0s to 2.0s. The ratio of s/H1/3, which refers to the clearance of the subface of the structure above still water level (s) to the incident wave height, is between −0.1 and 0.4. The spectral analysis results of the irregular wave impact pressure on the subface of the structure under various case studies are presented. The distribution of spectral moment of the impact pressure on the structure along the subface is given. And the influence of different incident wave parameters and relative clearance s/H1/3 on the average spectral moment of impact pressure are discussed.
