Harmonic generation and transmission past a submerged rectangular obstacle
Date of Original Version
Experiments were conducted in a wave flume to study the harmonic evolution of a normally incident linear monochromatic wave train as it propagated over a submerged impermeable obstacle of rectangular cross-section. The reflection and transmission characteristics of the system were studied and compared to a linear scattering model, which was found to overpredict the transmission coefficients. The experiments was also simulated using the fully nonlinear model by Stephan T. Grilli which performed well given its inviscid potential assumptions.
