Detail Product
u003cpu003eThis book is intended as an introduction to classical water wave theory for the college senior or first year graduate student. The material is self-contained; almost all mathematical and engineering concepts are presented or derived in the text, thus making the book accessible to practicing engineers as well.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eThe book commences with a review of fluid mechanics and basic vector concepts. The formulation and solution of the governing boundary value problem for small amplitude waves are developed and the kinematic and pressure fields for short and long waves are explored. The transformation of waves due to variations in depth and their interactions with structures are derived. Wavemaker theories and the statistics of ocean waves are reviewed. The application of the water particle motions and pressure fields are applied to the calculation of wave forces on small and large objects. Extension of the linear theory results to several nonlinear wave properties is presented. Each chapter concludes with a set of homework problems exercising and sometimes extending the material presented in the chapter. An appendix provides a description of nine experiments which can be performed, with little additional equipment, in most wave tank facilities.u003c/pu003eu003cbu003eContents:u003c/bu003eu003culu003eu003cliu003eIntroduction to Wave Mechanicsu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eA Review of Hydrodynamics and Vector Analysisu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eSmall-Amplitude Water Wave Theory Formulation and Solutionu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eEngineering Wave Propertiesu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eLong Wavesu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eWavemaker Theoryu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eWave Statistics and Spectrau003c/liu003eu003cliu003eWave Forcesu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eWaves Over Real Seabedsu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eNonlinear Properties Derivable from Small-Amplitude Wavesu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eNonlinear Wavesu003c/liu003eu003cliu003eA Series of Experiments for a Laboratory Course Component in Water Wavesu003c/liu003eu003c/ulu003eu003cbru003eu003cbu003eReadership:u003c/bu003e Coastal and ocean engineers.u003cbru003e Additional ISBNs: 9789810204211, 9810204213,9789814365697, 9814365696
