SHORT-CRESTED BREAKING WAVES

P.C. Machen

Abstract


The likely effects of short-crested (sc) breaking waves on ships and structures are summarised in the case of the simplest non-trivial sc sea at medium/high crossing angle. Typical experimental data of sc breaking wave-height and sc water particle speeds are given at model-scale.
