On the formation of freak waves on the surface of deep water
- 129 Downloads
Numerical simulation of the fully nonlinear water equations demonstrates the existence of giant breathers on the surface of deep water. The numerical analysis shows that this breather (or soliton of envelope) does not loose energy. The existence of such a breather can explain the appearance of freak waves.
