  1. Surface waves –wind , groups, hurricanes and tsunamis. INI Waves Symposium Thursday july 17 Julian Hunt UCL. ASU, TUD, Cambridge Thanks Sajjadi, Klettner Grimshaw,Chow

  2. Sajjadi S G, Hunt JCR , Drullion F (2013) Asymptotic Multi-layer analysis of wind over unsteady monochromatic surface waves J.Eng Maths Note critical layer at zc where U(z)= cr , wave speed. In above profile zc is in shear stress layer (zc < l s) . Also shown is where (zc > l s )for larger c r-as analysed for c i >0 by Miles(1957)

  3. Waves and Interfaces Seminar at UCL Julian Hunt 1.Wind-Wave Coupling Introduction Physical mechanisms involved for wind over unsteady surface and wave groups. Triple(or quadruple) deck theory for turbulent shear flows. Combining sheltering and unsteady critical layer mechanisms. Explain why groups are most efficient mechanism for air-sea energy exchange. Through analytical and computational modeling.

  4. Schematic Separated Sheltering L = O(a). Non-separated Sheltering. Schematic of wind over wave mechanisms for steady low amplitude waves. Shows sheltering mechanism in the surface layer and its coupling with the outer flow.

  5. Steady waves (ci=0). Benjamin, Townsend, BH, Mastenbroek… non-separated sheltering . But critical layer is important ; drag is affected for c r >u*

  6. Unsteady Waves For unsteady waves where 0 < c i /U* ~ 1. Mean streamlines of flow over the waves are shown in a frame moving with the waves. Waves closed loops are centred at the elevated critical height. Profiles of u–velocity perturbation for inviscid flow (when ν e = 0) is shown below. Perturbations become singular as the growth rate c I -> 0 .

  7. Out of phase Vel perturbation In phase Vel perturbation Waves growing; exp (i(k (x-c rt) .exp(-k ci t) . Inviscid flow Note singular behaviour as ci ->0, near critical layer

  8. Inviscid Mechanism for Unsteady Waves Fig of c I vs kz shows as ci 0 out-of-phase perturbation to \Delta u becomes very large. Occurs in very thin layer of thickness of O(c_i). Vorticity ( ωy) amplifies on lee-side and reduced on upwind-side. Leads to mean stream lines being deflected, "lower pressure" on the lee side  "higher drag". when ci > 0, wave grows; ci <0 wave decays. But there is a net force on the wave produced by the integrated effect of the critical layer as |ci|->0. ( Miles did not calculate profiles-only the integral effect prop to U’’(at z=zc))

  9. Historical Conclusions Miles (1957)/Lighthill (1962) calculate energy input/ growth for ci -> 0; a = const:; ka << 1. Note Lighthill’s analysis with delta functions (p192) suggests importance of thin , singular critical layers –but they were not mentioned explicitly. They conclude: there is a net inviscid force on monochromatic non-growing waves (steady waves).

  10. Computations (Steady Waves) We adopt full realizable RSM (TCL) [Sajjadi, Craft & Feng]. We compare full Reynolds-stress model with DNS, Sullivan et al. Also adopted semi-implicit FD solver with LRR turbulence model for comparison. Waves closed loops are centred at the critical height. Very similar behaviour as DNS.

  11. Computational Domain Schematic computational domain (84 x 50 x 5) mesh points. Bulk Reynolds number Re = 8000. Fully implicit, collocated, general curvilinear coordinates finite volume. Coupled to water through orbital velocities.

  12. Energy Transfer from Wind to Waves (I) Total energy transfer parameter, \beta. Critical layer and sheltering mechanisms for unsteady waves (ci ) ( << U*) vs wave age cr/U1. +++++, Miles (1957) calculation (ci = 0; νe = 0) Thick solid line, Janssen (1991) parameterization of Miles (1957) for ci = 0 ; inviscid ; zero eddy viscosity Thin solid line, present formulation: (\beta_T + \beta_c) for ci >0 ; finite eddy viscosity . \circ, Numerical simulation using Reynolds-stress closure model for ci >0 ; finite Reynolds stress.

  13. Monochromatic waves .Growth rate against wave speed / wind speed –models , and data Note how β rises with moderate increase in crit layer thickening of Inner viscous layer. But when cr/Ui ~5, the inner viscous layer diminishes the Sheltering mechanism , and β drops.

  14. Monochromatic waves .Wave growth based on Miles model , with zero and finite eddy viscosity. Note no growth in latter case

  15. Wave Groups (first proposed (?)by M.E.McIntyre –DAMTP ) On going project. Above application to group of waves Individual waves grow within group on upwind side and decrease on downwind side (hence plus/minus inertial critical layer effects). But shear layer over wave group leads to zc higher on lee side , U’’(zc) smaller. Hypothesis is net positive effect Study effect of non-uniform critical layer over groups (analytically & computationally). Preliminary results shown below.

  16. Wave group -3 -5 waves; concept of double effect of sheltering + Inertial critical layer ; numerical simulations

  17. Conclusions Physical growth mechanism is NOT soley due to steady Critical layer CL. Critical layer is unsteady problem. Growing/decaying wave amplitude in the groups increases CL on the downside of group where wave shape changes. CL plays an important role on sheltering. Asymmetrical sheltering leads to reduction in wind speed.

  18. 2. Tsunami waves The problem of negative tsunami waves travelling over long distances , being transformed into positive waves and impacting on beaches , before or after the transition. Ref .Klettner, C.A., Balasubramanian, S., Hunt, J.C.R., Fernando, H.J.S., Voropayev, S.I. and Eames, I., 2012 Draw down and run-up of tsunami waves on sloping beaches. Proc. Inst. Civil Engineers-Engineering and Computational Mechanics 165,119-129 .

Backward Tsunami slope • on the slope • Where x< xmx , alpaw <0 • Leading slope where alphaw <0 • Surface slope ~ bottom slope . • On trailing V shaped slop Wave slope |alphaw| tends to increase • -> rapid change in rear wave shape • -> shortening of wave dL/dt <0-> • Larger amplitude wave , and force momentum at beach

  25. Negative tsunami on a beach,tested in ASU hyd. lab • Note the sharp rise on the downstream end behind the deepening depression-same n-l process as for + waves. • Depression leads to shore line retreat • large wave up the beach .
