THE SIMILITUDE OF SCALE MODELS FOR THE STUDY OF SEICHES IN HARBOURS

F. Biesel

Abstract


The study of seiches in harbours is a relatively new scale model technique and poses many problems of similitude. We do not attempt here to be complete and consider all the questions that it poses, nor even to give a detailed account of the studies that the NEYRPIC LABORATORY is now carrying out on this subject. Our purpose is simply to set forth the conclusions that we consider have already been reached and the principal rules of similitude resulting from them. We hope thus to encourage as wide an exchange of opinion as possible
