Course content

Basic concepts and mathematical methods in wave theory. Dispersion, phase and group velocity, wave energy, Fourier integrals, stationary phase, the WKB method, ray theory. Application on surface waves, wave resistance, oscillations in closed and open basins, internal waves, Kelvin waves. Nonlinear effects, Stokes waves, solitons, breaking waves.

Learning outcome

To give an introduction to the basic concepts of hydrodynamic wave theory, the basis for computation of wave loads on ships and marine structures, for flood waves (tsunamis) and tides.

Admission to the course

Students at UiO register for courses and exams in Studentweb.

It will be an advantage to have taken MEK3230 – Fluid Mechanics, MEK2200 – Continuum Mechanics/MEK4220 – Continuum Mechanics (discontinued) and MAT3360 – Introduction to Partial Differential Equations.

Overlapping courses

Teaching

4 hours of lectures per week.

The course may be taught in Norwegian if the lecturer and all students at the first lecture agree to it.
