Vortex dynamics by P. G Saffman ( Book )
28 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The discovery of coherent structures in turbulence has fostered the hope that the study of vortices will lead to models and an understanding of turbulent flow, thereby solving or at least making less mysterious one of the great unresolved problems of classical physics. Vortex dynamics is a natural paradigm for the field of chaotic motion and modern dynamical system theory. The emphasis in this monograph is on the classical theory of inviscid incompressible fluids containing finite regions of vorticity. The effects of viscosity, compressibility, inhomogeneity, and stratification are enormously important in many fields of application, from hypersonic flight to global environmental fluid mechanics. However, this volume focuses on those aspects of fluid motion that are primarily controlled by the vorticity and are such that the effects of the other fluid properties are secondary. This book will be of interest to students of fluid mechanics, turbulence, and vortex methods as well as to applied mathematicians and engineers
An application of the Wiener-Hermite expansion to the diffusion of a passive scalar in a homogeneous turbulent flow by P. G Saffman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Research in Nonlinear Water Waves ( Book )
8 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Work continued on the effect of a thin wind drift layer on the structure of capillary gravity waves of permanent form. Results are obtained for waves that are not too steep. The structure of the wind drift layer for steep waves is studied. This involves construction of an integral equation approach, as the Fourier series method employed for the gentle waves become indadequate when the waves are steep. The instability of the thin wind drift layer is studied with the realization that the instability may be related to the generation of waves by wind in some physical circumstances. Satisfactory progress has been made with this work for the instability in the absence of waves or swell. The predictions are being used to study the development of an initially small wave spectrum

Effects of Long Waves on the Generation of Waves by Wind ( )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The program objective was a quantitative understanding of the properties of the short wind generated waves relevant to the interpretation of remote sensing radar images of the ocean. To that effect, the work has focused on the interaction between long and short waves in the presence of water and wind shear

Modulation of Radar Backscatter from the Ocean by a Variable Surface Current ( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Calculations of surface wave and radar cross section modulation induced by a spatially varying surface current have been compared with field measurements made with SAR (X- and L-bands), real aperture radar (X-band), laser slope guage, and CCD video camera during the Joint Canada/U.S. Ocean Wave Investigation Project (JOWIP) which took place in August 1983. The comparison reveals that (i) many existing wind-relaxation models underpredict the hydrodynamic effect of the current, (ii) simple Bragg scattering model underpredicts radar backscatter modulation for higher frequency radars (e.g., X-band) but appears acceptable at lower radar frequencies (e.g., L-band), (iii) the discrepancy between measurements and calculations at high radar frequency is reduced, but not eliminated, when the effects of long surface waves have been accounted for. Keywords include: Radar backscatter, Surface wave modulations, Wave-current interactions, Georgia strait experiment, and JOWIP. (RRH)
