APPLICATION OF THE SECOND-ORDER MODE COUPLING EQUATION TO COASTAL ENGINEERING PROBLEMS

Mitsuhiro Tanaka

Abstract


The Second-order Mode Coupling Equation (SMCE) is applied to the 3-dimensional evolution of a solitary wave the crest-line of which is not straight but bent initially. It is found that the bent solitary wave recovers a straight crest-line spontaneously by producing a nonuniform distribution of waveheight and hence that of propagation speed along the crest-line.

Keywords


second order mode coupling equation; equation application
