Abstract

The subject matter covered in this report concerns the characteristics of the surface waves produced in the ripple tank by the wave generators and the effect on the wave form of adding detergents to the working fluid. The results will be presented under the following headings: 1. Experimental procedure. 2. The wave generators. 3. Variables affecting wave strength. 4. Effect of adding detergents to working fluid. 5. Summary and conclusions.
