Water waves generated by underwater explosion by Bernard LeMéhauté( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book on explosion-generated water waves. It presents the theoretical foundations and experimental results of the generation and propagation of impulsively generated waves resulting from underwater explosions. Many of the theories and concepts presented herein are applicable to other types of water waves, in particular, tsunamis and waves generated by the fall of a meteorite. Linear and nonlinear theories, as well as experimental calibrations, are presented for cases of deep and shallow water explosions. Propagation of transient waves on dissipative, nonuniform bathymetries to
Transformation of monochromatic waves from deep to shallow water by Bernard LeMéhauté( Book )

7 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prediction of nearshore wave characteristics is an essential part of any study dealing with the determination of littoral transport or longshore currents. Since it is more efficient to determine the deepwater wave as opposed to in shallow water where many points are needed because of bottom effects, it is necessary to transform those deepwater values into shallow-water characteristics. This study reviews the state-of-the-art techniques for transformation of monochromatic surface gravity waves from deep to shallow water over a varying bathymetry. Nonlinear effects are considered and particular emphasis is put on the determination of breaking wave characteristics. For a plane sloping bottom, a new 'hybrid' wave theory is introduced which gives improved results for breaking characteristics as compared with existing theories. This hybrid theory uses cnoidal wave height transformation and linear wavelength transformation. Nomographs are presented for easy determination of breaking wave angles and other characteristics such as depth, wave height, and wavelength from given deepwater characteristics and bottom slope
A numerical model for predicting shoreline changes by Bernard LeMéhauté( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A mathematical model for long-term, three-dimensional shoreline evolution is developed. The combined effects of variations of sea level; wave refraction and diffraction; loss of sand by density currents during storms, by rip currents, and by wind; bluff erosion and berm accretion; effects of manmade structures such as long groin or navigational structures; and beach nourishment are all taken into account. A computer program is developed with various subroutines which permit modification as the state-of-the-art progresses. The program is applied to a test case at Holland Harbor, Michigan. (Author)
Mathematical modeling of shoreline evolution by Bernard LeMéhauté( Book )

7 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A critical literature survey on mathematical modeling of shoreline evolution is presented. The emphasis is on long-term evolution rather than seasonal or evolution taking place during a storm. The one-line theory of Pelnard-Considere (1956) is developed along with a number of applications. Refinements to the theory are introduced by considering changes of beach slope, wave diffraction effects, wave variation, and variation of sea level. The case of hooked bays is also reviewed. It is concluded that a finite-difference mathematical scheme could be developed for engineering purposes for a small wave angle. For the large wave angle, shoreline instability does not permit use of a reliable mathematical model at this time. (Author)

Wave shoaling by Bernard LeMéhauté( Book )

6 editions published between 1964 and 1966 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is a contribution to a larger project for studying the 'Modification of Wave Spectra on the Continental Shelf and in the Surf Zone.' Prior to dealing with a wave spectrum, a study of nonlinear effects on periodic waves appears to be necessary. For this purpose it is assumed that both friction effects and reflection effects are small. Then the principle of conservation of energy flux is applied to a periodic wave. This calculation has already been applied to a Stokes wave (periodic irrotational) to a third order of approximation (Le Mehaute and Webb, 1964). The purpose of this report is to perform the calculation up to the fifth order and to compare the corresponding result, with the third and first order of approximation. It will be the purpose of another (pending) report to present the limits of the principle of conservation of energy flux and to present a method of calculation which takes also into account bottom friction and reflection effect as well as nonlinear effects consistently.

Wave absorbers in harbors by Bernard LeMéhauté( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the purpose of this report to analyze the effect of wave absorbers on harbor agitation. A critical analysis of the previous studies on wave absorbers is presented. Then an attempt is made to improve the state of the art in the design of wave absorbers and in particular of rubble mound wave absorbers. A study on scale effects of wave absorbers built in scale models for studying wave agitation in harbors is also presented. Aside of the literature survey and general considerations on wave absorbers, a number of new theories have been developed and presented within this report. (Author)

On the breaking of waves arriving at an angle to the shore by Bernard LeMéhauté( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By using the method of conservation of energy flux between wave orthogonals, the breaking wave characteristics are obtained for waves traveling obliquely to the bottom contours of a straight shoreline. The results of the calculations are presented in the form of nomographs by using the linear and third order irrotational gravity wave theories. Three different breaking criteria are used in these calculations. In particular, a new breaking criterion is proposed for waves breaking on a gentle slope. Some calculations are also performed at the fifth order of approximation and the results compared with the linear and third order cases. (Author)
