The evaluation of wave characteristics has been widely studied by ocean engineers in the past. However, conventional investigations for determining wave characteristics have been focused on the nonlinear wave effects in a rigid seabed. On the other hand, most previous investigations for the wave-induced seabed response in a porous seabed have been only concerned with the soil response after wave pressure penetrate into seabed. In this paper, employing a complex wave number, the whole wave-seabed interaction problem will be re-examined. Based on the new closed-form analytical solution, a new wave dispersion equation is derived, including the seabed characteristics. The numerical results indicate that the wave characteristics (such as the wavelength, wave pressure and wave profile) are affected by the soil permeability and shear modulus in a shallow water.
