Be the Pages: In fluid dynamics, wave–current interaction is the interaction between surface gravity waves and a mean interaction implies an exchange of energy, so after the start of the interaction both the waves and the mean flow are affected. For depth-integrated and phase-averaged flows, the quantity of primary importance for the dynamics of the interaction is the wave radiation stress tensor.

This broad topic is usually referred to with the general term of Wave–Current Interaction (WCI) that, from the general point of view, traces back to the theoretical works of Longuet-Higgins () on longshore currents flows produced by waves, and to the studies of the dynamics of waves in a moving medium (Tayfun et al., ).Cited by: Wave-generated oscillatory flows, with periods on the order of seconds to tens of seconds are produced by surface gravity waves, though lower frequency internal waves can also be present. When wave-generated oscillatory motion of the water column extends to the seabed, wave-current interactions lead to increases in bed shear stress and the. The chapter concentrates on phenomena resulting from atmosphere–ocean interaction in the tropics where the two fluid systems are most closely “coupled.” Wind stress acting on the sea-surface generates motion in the form of waves and currents. The surface current is typically 3% of the wind speed. hints and notes for questions at. Excerpt from Interaction of Waves and Currents This report reviews wave - current interaction, a phenomenon which may affect wave height and wave direction in unexpected ways. Wave-current interaction has received relatively more attentidn from Europeans than from Americans because of the greater importance of tides to countries bordering the.

This paper presents some theoretical results of a general study of the interaction between surface gravity waves and a steady current Assuming irrotational flow and a second order Stokes wave motion, the main objects of the paper have been. To present a simple graphical method for the computation of the wave length m a current field. The prediction of the behaviour of submarine pipelines on an erodable seabed is made based upon a series of small scale flume tests with currents and waves. In these tests the influence of the basic parameters, such as pipe diameter, approach velocity and height of the pipe relative to the original seabed, have been by:
