THE LOSSES OF INNER ENERGY IN SEA WAVES

V.K. Shtencel

Abstract


As it is known Lamb in his time suggested that energy losses in waves stipulated by liquid viscosity should be calculated by a formular: 2 W, = 2%2fZ \ V (1) .A where )) is kinematic viscosity coefficient The following prototype observations and laboratory experimental data showed that actual losses tens and hundreds times exceed those calculated by this formular. This can be explained by the turbulent character of according to Lamb, suggested to substitute the turbulent viscosity coefficient determined depending on wave parameters (instead of the kinematic viscosity one).
