A Study of Wave Dissipation Rate and Particles Velocity in Muddy Beds
AbstractThe interactions between free surface waves and layers of cohesive sediments including wave height attenuation and mud movement are of great importance in coastal and marine engineering. In this study, the results from a new analytical model were compared with those from literature experimental works and analytical models in terms of wave height dissipation rate and mud velocity. It was found that the new model provided good agreements in the case of coexisting waves and currents, while the literature model of Ng (explained in Section 2 of the text) —assuming the mud layer as a highly viscous layer with high shear rates—matched well with the experimental data for high viscosity (mud viscosity, νm = O [0.01 m2/s]). In addition, it was found that the new model is able to successfully simulate particles velocity in the presence of co-current. View Full-Text
