ENERGY LOSSES UNDER WAVE ACTION

P.D. Treloar, A. Brebner

Abstract


Wave-height attenuation measurements were made in two identical flumes of different widths and the results used to separate bottom energy losses from sidewall energy losses These energy losses, in the form of rates of energy dissipation, were then compared with their theoretical values as calculated by solving the linearized Prandtl boundary layer equations and evaluating the Rayleigh dissipation function Using these results, an adjusted formula for the wave-height attenuation modulus was determined.

Keywords
