Mechanics of Ocean Waves
M. Kaihatu James,
Published in Springer International Publishing
Pages: 77 - 100

This chapter reviews mechanics of water waves and wave–body interactions pertaining to ocean and coastal engineering based on linear and weakly nonlinear wave theories. Numerical methods based on Green’s theorem and mixed Eulerian–Lagrangian formulation for fully nonlinear wave and wave–body interaction problems are also discussed. The discussion also covers methods to determine the wave forces on fixed and floating structures, including the viscous drag force.
