SHIP WAVES IN SHOALING WATERS

J.W. Johnson

Abstract


Models of two types of vessels were towed at various speeds in water of uniform depth. On one side of the sailing line the ship waves were allowed to move over beaches of various slopes. The wave heights were measured and compared at two points equidistant from the sailing line— patterns were determined by photographs.
