Water Wave Mechanics (3 crs)

CGN

Senior (4xxx)

XXX

Prerequisites:   
"CWR3201: Fluid Mechanics"
AND "MAP2302: (GM) Ordinary Differ Equations"
Co-requisites:   
None

Course Description:

This course will first provide an introduction to hydromechanics and then present the development and solution of the basic boundary value problem for water waves. Engineering properties of waves will then be examined including: shoaling, refraction, breaking, bed dissipation, and wave forces on structures. Prerequisites: CWR3201 - Fluid Mechanics and MAP2302 - (GM) Ordinary Differ. Equations
