Item description for Water Wave Mechanics for Engineers and Scientists (Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering, Vol. 2) (v. 2) by Robert G. Dean & Robert A. Dalrymple...

This book is intended as an introduction to classical water wave theory for the college senior or first year graduate student. The material is self-contained; almost all mathematical and engineering concepts are presented or derived in the text, thus making the book accessible to practicing engineers as well.

The book commences with a review of fluid mechanics and basic vector concepts. The formulation and solution of the governing boundary value problem for small amplitude waves are developed and the kinematic and pressure fields for short and long waves are explored. The transformation of waves due to variations in depth and their interactions with structures are derived. Wavemaker theories and the statistics of ocean waves are reviewed. The application of the water particle motions and pressure fields are applied to the calculation of wave forces on small and large objects. Extension of the linear theory results to several nonlinear wave properties is presented. Each chapter concludes with a set of homework problems exercising and sometimes extending the material presented in the chapter. An appendix provides a description of nine experiments which can be performed, with little additional equipment, in most wave tank facilities.

Reviews - What do customers think about Water Wave Mechanics for Engineers and Scientists (Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering, Vol. 2) (v. 2)?

Good accessible book on water wave mechanics  Apr 4, 2006
The objectives of this book are to introduce the reader to the fundamental understanding of water wave theory and to apply the basic physical principles to the coastal and ocean environments. The prerequisites for understanding this book are knowledge of fluid mechanics, basic calculus, and differential equations. Thus it is presumed that the student is an engineer, and probably an ocean engineer. This book is really quite accessible. I am an electrical engineer and I have been using it to help perform animations and visual effects regarding water and its properties. Its clear examples have been quite valuable in turning seemingly complex equations into actual physical phenomena that can be measured. I consider it a steal at its low price considering its content. Also, it is good as a textbook since it contains plenty of homework problems at the end of each chapter.
The table of contents are:
Introduction to Wave Mechanics
A Review of Hydrodynamics and Vector Analysis (Eulerian and Lagrangian view, Navier-Stokes Equation)
Small-Amplitude Water Wave Theory Formulation and Solution
Engineering Wave Properties
Long Waves
Wavemaker Theory
Wave Statistics and Spectra
Wave Forces
Waves Over Real Seabeds
Nonlinear Properties Derivable from Small-Amplitude Waves
Nonlinear Waves
A Series of Experiments for a Laboratory Course Component in Water Waves
