Title Tsunamis: The Response of Harbours With Sloping Boundaries to Long Wave Excitation
Creator Zelt, Jeffrey Alan
Description The influence of sloping boundaries on long wave response of bays and harbours is studies in this work. Laboratory experiments are performed to help validate the theoretical analysis which is applicable to nonbreaking waves. A set of long wave equations in the Langrangian description is derived which includes terms to account for nonlinear, dispersive, and dissipative processes for wave propagation in two horizontal coordinates. A finite element model is developed based on these equations...
