Nonlinear Surface Waves in a Basin with Floating Broken Ice

Nonlinear Surface Waves in a Basin with Floating Broken Ice The method of multiple scales is used to deduce equations for three nonlinear approximations of a wave disturbance in a basin of constant depth covered with broken ice. In deducing these equations, we take into account the space and time variability of the wave profile in the expression for the velocity potential on the basin surface. These equations are used to construct uniformly suitable asymptotic expansions up to quantities of the third order of smallness for the liquid-velocity potential and elevations of the basin surface formed by a periodic running wave of finite amplitude. We analyze the dependence of the amplitude-phase characteristics of elevations of the basin surface on the thickness of ice, nonlinearity of its vertical acceleration, and the amplitude and wavelength of the fundamental harmonic. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Oceanography Springer Journals

Abstract

The method of multiple scales is used to deduce equations for three nonlinear approximations of a wave disturbance in a basin of constant depth covered with broken ice. In deducing these equations, we take into account the space and time variability of the wave profile in the expression for the velocity potential on the basin surface. These equations are used to construct uniformly suitable asymptotic expansions up to quantities of the third order of smallness for the liquid-velocity potential and elevations of the basin surface formed by a periodic running wave of finite amplitude. We analyze the dependence of the amplitude-phase characteristics of elevations of the basin surface on the thickness of ice, nonlinearity of its vertical acceleration, and the amplitude and wavelength of the fundamental harmonic.
