Freak Waves in Unidirectional Wave Trains and Their Properties
Coastal Engineering 1992
This study aims to make clear the cause and occurrence condition of twodimensional(2-D) freak waves by solving the hydrodynamic equations of 2-D irrotational flow for nonlinear waves with various spectra corresponding to swell from wind waves and describing the long-time evolution. As a result, it is shown that the third order resonant interaction causes the 2-D freak waves of which surface profiles are very similar with those observed in nature and multiplies the occurrence probability withdoi:10.1061/9780872629332.056 fatcat:n5hbabalvfbxrkjinzncfs5kji
