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
Experiment Type: Tsunami Wave Basin
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, we anticipated that the nonlinear interactions between swell and tsunami would be enhanced relative to lower Ursell numbers. In addition, the drive signal for the wavemaker put the tsunami in the middle of the wavetrain, thus allowing for the interaction of the incoming swell with the reflected tsunami from the beach.
