EXPERIMENTAL AND NUMERICAL STUDY ON SOLITARY WAVE BREAKING

Hitoshi Nishimura, Satoshi Takewaka

Abstract


Interior flow fields under drastically transforming solitary waves were visualized and recorded using a high-speed video system. Flow velocities were estimated by tracing fluid particles through spatial correlation analysis of video images. A Lagrangian equation system was successfully employed to numerically simulate twodimensional wave transformations in a vertical plane.
