Abstract

An exact solution of the problem of the generation of three–dimensional periodic internal waves in an exponentially stratified, viscous fluid is constructed in a linear approximation. The wave source is an arbitrary part of the surface of a vertical circular cylinder which moves in radial, azimuthal, and vertical directions. Solutions satisfying exact boundary conditions, describe both the beam of outgoing waves and wave boundary layers of two types: internal boundary layers, whose thickness depends on the buoyancy frequency and the geometry of the problem, and viscous boundary layers, which, as in a homogeneous fluid, are determined by kinematic viscosity and frequency. Asymptotic solutions are derived in explicit form for cylinders of large, intermediate, and small dimensions relative to the natural scales of the problem.
