In this paper a new Infinite Element is presented to solve the problem of two-dimensional linear water wave diffraction by arrays of solid bodies. The method is valid for any number of arrays of arbitrary individual geometries, number and configuration of bodies. Example problems are solved. The results are compared with the analytical solutions for the special case of wave diffraction by arrays of bottom-mounted vertical circular cylinders. The comparison shows a good agreement, thus verifying the accuracy of the infinite elements for water wave diffraction problems.
