Description: Water wave problems are of interest to coastal engineers, marine and offshore engineers, engineers working on naval architecture and ship design, and scientists
working on physical oceanography and marine hydrodynamics. The theoretical study of water waves can betraced back to two centuries ago. In the past few
decades, research in water waves has been very active, driven by the increasing demand of sea transport and offshore oil exploration. Various water wave theories
have been developed to describe different wave phenomena. These wave theories enable us to understand the physical mechanisms of water waves and provide the
basis for various water wave models.
Historically, the techniques of water wave modelingwere developed in mainly two areas, coastal engineering and offshore engineering (including naval
architecture). While the traditional wave modeling in coastal engineering has emphasised detailed wavetransformation over a rigid and fixed bottom or structure,
the wave modeling in offshore engineering and navalarchitecture has focused on wave loads on relatively large bodies and the corresponding structure responses. In
recent years, there has been a trend to couple the modeling of complicated wave transformation (e.g., wave breaking) with the analysis of body motion.
Furthermore, efforts are also being made to developgeneral-purpose models that can be applied not only to water wave problems, but also to many other types of
turbulent-free surface flow problems (e.g., river flows, mold filling).
This book is based largely on the author’s teachingand research during the last 14 years. The relevant postgraduate courses include Coastal Engineering and
Offshore Hydrodynamics developed at National University of Singapore and Advanced Turbulence Modeling developed at Sichuan University. The relevant
research is the modeling of water waves and turbulent-free surface flows at Cornell University, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, National University of
Singapore, and Sichuan University. The intended readers of this book include students, researchers, and professionals. The main purpose of this book is twofold: (1)
to introduce readers to the basic
