Steady wave patterns on a non-uniform steady fluid flow

  • By F. URSELL
  • Published 1960


A steady slightly non-uniform flow with a free surface is subject to a concentrated surface pressure which gives rise to a pattern of surface waves. (For gravity waves on deep water this is the well-known Kelvin ship-wave pattern.) The motion is assumed inviscid, and the waves are assumed small. A theory is developed for the wave pattern, based on the… (More)
