Sort By:   

  Experiment-1: Calibration
Dates: January 12, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description:
Facility: Oregon State University, OR, United States


  Experiment-2: Combined Tsunami and Swell - Random waves and tsunamis, single measurement location: Measurements of free surface elevation and near bottom velocities.
Dates: January 12, 2010 - January 15, 2010
Description: These tests were conducted in January 2010 and were considered "pilot" tests for the overall Combined Tsunami-Swell tests, which were conducted in March 2010. Since the combination of a tsunami with random or monochromatic swell wave fields was as of...
Facility: Oregon State University, OR, United States


  Experiment-3: EXP1-Tsunami - Tsunami time series: Measurements of free surface elevations and near-bottom velocities
Dates: March 08, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description: To help detect interactions between the tsunami and the overlying random swell, we also ran cases with the tsunami in isolation. These experiments were performed using a paddle displacement signal which was standard for the generation of a tsunami.
Facility: Oregon State University, OR, United States


  Experiment-4: EXP2-Tsunami-Swell_1 - Random swell with peak period of 2 s, significant waveheight of 5 cm, and tsunami mid-time series: Measurements of free surface elevation and near bottom velocities
Dates: March 08, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description: This experiment investigated the interaction of a tsunami with a swell with a significant waveheight of 5cm and a peak period of 2 seconds. Due to the small waveheight and short wave period, the evolution of the wavefield was expected to be subdued relative...
Facility: Oregon State University, OR, United States


  Experiment-5: EXP3-Tsunami-Swell_2 - Random swell with peak period of 2 s, significant waveheight of 5 cm, and tsunami mid-time series: Measurements of free surface elevation and near bottom velocities
Dates: March 08, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description: This experiment investigated the interaction of a tsunami with a swell with a significant waveheight of 5cm and a peak period of 4 seconds. This condition has the lowest wave steepness of all the wave conditions tested; it was anticipated that evolution...
Facility: Oregon State University, OR, United States


  Experiment-6: EXP4-Tsunami-Swell_3 - Random swell with peak period of 2 s, significant waveheight of 10 cm, and tsunami mid-time series: Measurements of free surface elevation and near bottom velocities
Dates: March 08, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description: This experiment investigated the interaction of a tsunami with a swell with a significant wave height of 10cm and a peak period of 2 seconds. This is the steepest wave condition run. The evolution of the swell wave field, due to this high degree of steepness...

  Experiment-7: EXP6-Swell-1 - Random swell with peak period of 2 s and significant waveheight of 10 cm: Measurements of free surface elevations and near-bottom velocities
Dates: March 08, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description: In addition to running tsunamis in isolation, we also ran random swells in isolation. This test uses a random swell with a significant waveheight of 5cm and a peak period of 2 seconds. This represents a case with relatively low nonlinearity (low Ursell...

  Experiment-8: EXP7-Swell-2 - Random swell with peak period of 4 s and significant waveheight of 5 cm: Measurements of free surface elevations and near-bottom velocities
Dates: March 08, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description: This is a random swell case run in isolation, with a significant waveheight of 5cm and a peak period of 4 seconds. This case has the lowest steepness of all the swell cases present in this experiment, and thus is also expected to evolve slowly over the...
Facility: Oregon State University, OR, United States


  Experiment-9: EXP8-Swell-3 - Random swell with peak period of 2 s and significant waveheight of 10 cm: Measurements of free surface elevations and near-bottom velocities
Dates: March 08, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description: This is a random swell case run in isolation, with a significant waveheight of 10cm and a peak period of 2 seconds. It is the steepest wave case run in these series of experiments, and was expected to evolve rapidly over the laboratory bathymetry. The...

  Experiment-10: EXP5-Tsunami-Swell_4 - Random swell with peak period of 4 s, significant waveheight of 10 cm, and tsunami mid-time series: Measurements of free surface elevation and near bottom velocities
Dates: March 08, 2010 - March 19, 2010
Description: This experiment investigated the interactive effects of a tsunami with a swell with a peak period of 4s and a significant waveheight of 10cm. This has a high Ursell number, and is thus the most nonlinear swell wavetrain in the testing series. As a result...

Description: This is a combined tsunami-swell case, in which the swell has a peak period of 4 seconds and a significant waveheight of 10 cm. This swell has the highest Ursell number, and thus the highest degree of nonlinear content, of all swell waves run in the...
