Viscous Effect on Surface Waves Generated by Steady Disturbances


A linearized theory is applied here to investigate the viscous effect on water waves generated and maintained by a system of external disturbances which is distributed over the free surface of an otherwise uniform flow. The flow is taken to be in the steady state configuration. The analysis is carried out to yield the asymptotic expressions for the surface wave when the Reynolds number of the flow is either large or small.
