Based on an eigenfunction expansion of velocity potential and a linear model between the pressure difference between two sides of a perforated wall and the fluid velocity inside it, a semi-analytic linear solution has been acquired for wave interaction with a combined cylinder with an solid interior column surrounded by a coaxial exterior column with perforated wall at a section in azimuthal direction. Numerical experiments have been carried out to examine the influences on the wave force and wave run-up on the combined cylinders with perforated wall by the porous coefficient, the size of the perforated section, and the ratio between the radii of the interior and the exterior columns. This paper also presents the comparison between the numerical experiments results and the physical experiments results. It is acceptable of the comparison of these two results. The combined cylinder may reduce both the wave run-up and the wave loads on it through combination of certain parameters.
