The evolution along a tank of unidirectional nonlinear wave groups with narrow spectrum previously studied in [1] is compared with numerical simulations based on weakly, strongly and fully nonlinear models. Measurements of the instantaneous surface elevation within the laboratory tank were carried out using digital processing of video-recorded sequences of images of the contact line movement at the tank side wall. Records of the measured surface displacements variation were obtained along the… CONTINUE READING
