Description: The course deals with advanced methods and techniques in generation and analysis of ocean waves in physical models. The course will cover analysis of long and short-crested waves, generation of linear and non-linear regular waves, generation of oblique waves and associated laboratory difficulties, generation of long-crested and short crested irregular waves, wave reflections and associated laboratory difficulties, active absorption in flumes and basins, wave groups, bounded long waves and wave generator choice and design.
The course will be lectures followed by laboratory exercises to get hands on experience with the different methods.
Prerequisites: Basic fluid and wave mechanics
Learning objectives: The objective of the course is to train students in advanced methods and techniques in generation and analysis of waves in physical models in order to know their advantages and limitations.
Teaching methods: Lectures and laboratory exercises
Criteria for assessment: Report on laboratory exercises to be delivered by the students and evaluated by the lecturers
