This paper presents a fundamental study of the dynamics of wind in the vicinity of progressive water waves. The normal pressure distribution and the structure of the velocity profile immediately above progressive water waves are investigated. A wind-wave facility 115 feet long, 74J4 inches high, and 35^ inches wide is used which is equipped with an oscillatmg-plate wave generator. Velocities up to 80 fps can be obtained at a nominal water depth of 3 feet. An oscillating device (or wave follower… Expand

Direct measurement of aerodynamic pressure above a simple progressive gravity wave
Measurements of the aerodynamic pressure distribution at the interface between air and simple progressive water waves are obtained with the use of a pressure sensor that follows the water surface.Expand
On the generation of surface waves by shear flows. Part 5
Laboratory and field measurements of the generation of gravity waves by turbulent winds imply that a theoretical model based on laminar flow may be adequate on a laboratory, but not an oceanographic,Expand
Laboratory study of air flowing over a smooth surface onto small water waves
This paper presents an experimental and analytical study of a two-layer shearing motion near a boundary. The two-layered flow arises when air passes from over a smooth solid flat surface onto a waterExpand

A theory is initiated for the generation of waves upon a water surface, originally at rest, by a random distribution of normal pressure associated with the onset of a turbulent wind. CorrlationsExpand

If air flows concurrently with a liquid, there are critical air velocities above which two-dimensional and three-dimensional waves appear at the interface. The physical process responsible for theseExpand
