Standing surface waves in a rectangular tank with local wall and bottom irregularities



The results of laboratory experiments on the estimation of the effect of wall and bottom geometry on the frequency, height, and decay rate of standing surface waves in a tank oscillating in the vertical direction are presented. The effect of one or two semi-cylindrical inserts mounted on the face and rear walls of the tank is considered in detail for the cases of a horizontal bottom and a linear shallow on the bottom. The experimental data are interpreted using a mathematical longwave model based on the method of accelerated convergence.
