A complete analytical solution is obtained, by using an integral transform method, for the porouswavemaker problem, when the effect of surface tension is taken into account on the free surface of water of finitedepth in which surface waves are produced by small horizontal oscillations of a porous vertical plate. The final results are expressed in the form of convergent integrals as well as series and known results are reproduced when surface tension is neglected.
