Abstract

The energy and force characteristics of periodic internal wave beams in a viscous exponentially stratified fluid are analyzed. The exact solutions of linearized problems of generation obtained by integral transformations describe not only three-dimensional internal waves but also the associated boundary layers of two types. The solutions not containing empirical parameters are brought to a form that allows a direct comparison with experimental data for generators of various types (friction, piston, and combined) of rectangular or elliptic shape. The stress tensor and force components acting on the generator are given in quadratures. In the limiting cases, the solutions are uniformly transformed to the corresponding expressions for the problems in a two-dimensional formulation.
