DYNAMIC WAVE SETUP

Jen-Men Lo

Abstract


The wave setup for a given wave spectrum was re-evaluated with the radiation stress term including the low-frequency terms. This setup which is referred to here as "dynamic wave setup", was compared with the steady setup, which is generated by including only the non-periodic radiation stress terms. The results of the study showed that the dynamic wave setup is greater than the steady wave setup, sometimes almost double its value. Therefore, the dynamic wave setup is important for engineering applications, particularly in the study of storm surges and coastal engineering problems.
