Waves on a shear flow

  • K.K. Puri (a1)

Abstract

The propogation of disturbance when a shear flow with a free surface, in a channel of infinite horizontal extent and finite depth, is disturbed by the application of time-oscillatory pressure, is studied. The initial value problem is solved by using transform techniques and the steady state solution is obtained therefrom in the limit t → ∞. The effect of the initial shear on the development of the wave system is investigated.
