Some Aspects of Surface Water Wave Scale Effects

by Gerrit Abraham,

Serial Information: Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers, 1962, Vol. 127, Issue 1, Pg. 60-74

Document Type: Journal Paper


Model studies of water gravity waves generated by moving pressure disturbance including study of scale effects due to surface tension is presented; effects on water (ocean) surface by pressure distribution of hurricane; investigation to determine whether waves generated by aircraft, flying so low over water surface that they gain large part of their lift by maintaining air cushion between plane itself and water surface, will endanger stability of such planes.
