Grahic Jump Location
Horizontal and vertical velocity at the wave surface near an extreme crest. Dots are from the numerical wave tank solution and the lines are from the Creamer transform.
Grahic Jump Location
Horizontal velocities under the crest of a 26 m, 13.5 sec. wave in 44 m water depth
Grahic Jump Location
Normalized crest height ratios for mean JONSWAP spectra. The spectral steepness is 0.01 for the bottom pair of curves and 0.07 for the top pair.
Grahic Jump Location
Conventional and phase modulation solutions for a short wave on a long wave. The solid line shows the first order solution, the dashed line the conventional second order solution, and the line with dots the phase modulation solution.
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of measured and predicted horizontal velocities 0.1 m above mean water level in a two dimensional laboratory experiment
