Capillary-gravity waves in the presence of infinite porous plates
The wave motion generated by a porous plate immersed in a non-wetting liquid of infinite depth is investigated. The boundary value problem for the velocity potentials is solved using Taylor's assumption on the plate and a contact-line condition that accounts for the dynamic variation of the angle of contact and the vorticity there. The amplitude of the radiated waves and the energy dissipated are calculated both when the plate is oscillating horizontally and vertically with a prescribed velocity. Also the scattering of a harmonic wave incident normally to the plate is considered and the reflexion and transmission coefficients are obtained.
