Abstract

Experiments were performed to examine the waveforms generated by a flap type wave maker in a moving, three layer fluid. Results show that the observed modulating waveforms could be predicted accurately for low frequencies and if the two interfaces are sufficiently close together, both mode one waves (whose amplitude vary in the vertical such that there is only one maximum) and mode two waves (with a vertical amplitude structure that contains two relative maxima) are generated of similar amplitude. This results in downstream shifts from sinuous to varicose modes of oscillation. (from authors' abstract)
