Figures

Grahic Jump Location
Wave probe locations for Stage 2 of the measuring program
Grahic Jump Location
Inverted still images showing Type 1 wave scattering. Incident waves approach from the bottom of figure and dashed black lines highlight their phase. The time difference between the slides is, Δt=0.08 s.
Grahic Jump Location
Still images showing Type 2 scattered wave. Incident waves approach from the top of figure and dashed white lines highlight their phase. The time difference between the slides is, Δt=0.08 s.
Grahic Jump Location
Spatial profiles of Type 1 wave scattering. Data corresponds to θ=0 deg radii. The arrows indicate position of scattered wave. In each figure the phase, Φ, of incident wave cycle in radians is: (a) Φ≈0 (crest at location of cylinder center) (b) Φ≈0.5 (c) Φ≈1.1 (d) Φ≈1.7.
Grahic Jump Location
Spatial profiles of Type 2 wave scattering. Data corresponds to θ=0 deg radii. The arrows indicate position of scattered wave. In each figure the phase, Φ, of incident wave cycle in radians is: (a) Φ≈π (trough at location of cylinder center) (b) Φ≈3.3 (c) Φ≈3.9 (d) Φ≈4.5.
Grahic Jump Location
3D contour plots of data recorded along θ=0° radius: (a) Incident wave, (b) scattered waves
Grahic Jump Location
Temporal profiles recorded at r=D/2 (cylinder surface) for: (a) θ=0 dedg, (b) θ=90 deg, and (c) θ=180 deg
