Here is the listing of Best reference books on Mechanics of Water Waves.
|1. “Oceanographical Engineering” by R. L. Wiegel
Book Review: This book describes the methodologies of observation, analysis and prediction of the waves generated through wind in the ocean, seas and coastal regions along with islands, channels, tides, lagoons and estuaries. The book also deals with the physical aspects of waves both at sea and from space. The book also provides a description of the parameters related to wave characterization. The book also discusses wave prediction in oceanic and coastal waters taking into consideration the spectral energy balance. This book is useful for graduate students as an introduction to classical wave theory.
|2. “Waves in Oceanic and Coastal Waters” by Leo H. Holthuijsen
Book Review: This book is suitable at the graduate and undergraduate levels as an introduction to classical water wave theory. The book also covers most of the mathematical and engineering concepts thereby making it very suitable for practicing professionals. The book covers the concepts of basic vectors and fluid mechanics. The book also demonstrates the wave transformation because of depth variation and structure interaction. The book also reviews wavemaker theories and ocean wave statistics. The book also extends the linear theory results to several nonlinear wave properties.
|3. “Water Wave Mechanics For Engineers and Scientists” by Robert G Dean|
