On shear instability and propagation of surface gravity waves in sea straits
- 28 Downloads
Normal mode analysis of stability of shear flows of inviscid, incompressible fluids in channels with variable cross section and with a free upper surface is undertaken. Some general analytical results are obtained for basic flows with smooth velocity profiles in channels with smooth topography function. A Kelvin-Helmholtz instability study in a channel with constant topography function is also analyzed.
