Theory of wind-driven sea
In collaboration with:
-- average steepness
Canonical transformation - eliminating three-wave interactions:
Statistical description: interactions:
- empirical dependences
Conservative KE has formal constants of motion interactions:
Q – flux of action
P – flux of energy
For isotropic spectra n=n(|k|) Q and P are scalars
let n ~ k-x, then Snl ~ k19/2-3xF(x), 3 < x < 9/2
Energy spectrum interactions:
F(x)=0 interactions:, when x=23/6, x=4 – Kolmogorov-Zakharov solutions
Kolmogorov’s constants are expressed in terms of F(y), where
Kolmogorov’s cascades interactions:Snl=0(Zakharov, PhD thesis 1966)
Direct cascade (Zakharov PhD thesis,1966; Zakharov & Filonenko 1966)
Inverse cascade (Zakharov PhD thesis,1966)
Numerical experiment with “artificial” pumping (grey). Solution is close to Kolmogorov-Zakharov solutions in the corresponding “inertial” intervals
Phillips, O.M., JFM. V.156,505-531, 1985. interactions:
Just a hypothesis to check interactions:
Nonlinear transfer dominates!
Snl >> Sinput , Sdiss
Existence of inertial intervals for wind-driven waves is a key point of critics of the weak turbulence approach for water waves
Non-dimensional wave input rates
Wave input term Sin for U10wp/g=1
Dispersion of different estimates of wave input Sin and dissipation Sdiss is of the same magnitude as the terms themselves !!!
Term-to-term comparison of S key point of critics of the weak turbulence approach for water wavesnl and Sin. Algorithm by N. Ivenskikh (modified Webb-Resio-Tracy). Young waves, standard JONSWAP spectrum
The approximation procedure splits wave balance into two parts when Snl dominates
We have two-parametric family of self-similar solutions where relationships between parameters are determined by property of homogeneity of collision integral Snl
and function of self-similar variable Ub(x) obeys integro-differential equation
Stationary Kolmogorov-Zakharov solutions appear to be particular cases of the family of non-stationary (or spatially non-homogeneous) self-similar solutions when left-hand and right-hand sides of (**) vanish simultaneously !!!
Self-similar solutions for wave swell (no input and dissipation)
Quasi-universality of wind-wave spectra dissipation)
Spatial down-wind spectra
Dependence of spectral shapes on indexes of self-similarity is weak
Numerical solutions for duration-limited case dissipation)vs non-dimensional frequency w*=wU/g
Time-(fetch-) independent spectra grow as power-law functions of time (fetch) but experimental wind speed scaling
1. Duration-limited growth
2. Fetch-limited growth
is not consistent with our “spectral flux approach”
Experimental dependencies use 4 parameters. Our two-parameteric self-similar solutions dictate two relationships between these 4 parameters
For case 2
ass – self-similarity parameter
Experimental power-law fits of wind-wave growth. functions of time (fetch) but experimental wind speed scaling
Something more than an idealization?
