SEICHE IN PORTS

A.S. Apte, G. Marcou

Abstract


In his thesis Prof. John S. McHewn has given an account of experiments on seiche in port models. Though the fundamental causes of seiche in harbours and ports are more or less known, we have little knowledge of the harbour dimensions for which a particular seiche is likely to occur. A systematic study was therefore initiated by Prof. McNown and our work described in this paper may be considered as its continuation.
