Page 40 of the CGWAVE manual (August 1998) describes the equations used for floating docks within the computational domain - formulation of Tsay & Liu (1983). I suppose a floating barrier could be used to dissipate energy, but I can't think of why you would want to use that approach rather than a reflection coefficient.

E.g., for transmissible (permeable) breakwaters, there are both a reflective and a transmissive component of wave. When it is buffled breakwater, it is very close to fixed floating dock, so I wonder if there is some experimental data about that....
