SHOALING OF CNOIDAL WAVES

I.A. Svendson, O. Brink-Kjaer

Abstract


An equation is derived which governs the propagation of a cnoidal wave train over a gently sloping bottom. The equation is solved numerically, the solution being tabulated in terms of fH (Eq. 47) as a function of Ei = (Etr/pg) 1/3/gT2 and hi = h/gT2. Results are compared with sinusoidal wave theory. Two numerical examples are included.

Keywords
