    The classical theory of water waves is based on the theory of inviscid flows. However it is important to include viscous effects in some applications. Two models are proposed to add dissipative effects in the context of the Boussinesq equations, which include the effects of weak dispersion and nonlinearity in a shallow water framework.

In addition, Berkhoff experiments are computed and compared by the two models, and agreement between model results and available experimental data is found to be quite reasonable, which demonstrates the two models' capacity to simulate wave transformation. However they can deal with different physical processes respectively, and they have their own characteristics.

    2016-04-01

    In this poster, Boussinesq wave equations for internal wave propagation in a two-fluid system bounded by two impermeable plates are derived and analyzed. Using the perturbation method as well as the Padé approximation, a set of three equations accurate up to the fourth order are derived and displayed by three unknowns: the interfacial elevation, upper and lower velocity potentials at arbitrary vertical positions. No limitation on nonlinearity is made while weakly dispersive effects are originally considered in the derivation. The derived equations are examined by comparing its dispersion relation with those of existing models to verify the accuracy. The results show that present model equations provide an excellent base for simulating internal waves not only in shallower configuration but also medium configuration.

    2016-10-01

    Whitham modulation theory with degeneracy in wave action is considered. The case where all components of the wave action conservation law, when evaluated on a family of periodic travelling waves, have vanishing derivative with respect to wavenumber is considered. It is shown that Whitham modulation equations morph, on a slower time scale, into the two way Boussinesq equation. Both the 1 + 1 and 2 + 1 cases are considered. The resulting Boussinesq equation arises in a universal form, in that the coefficients are determined from the abstract properties of the Lagrangian and do not depend on particular equations. One curious by-product of the analysis is that the theory can be used to confirm that the two-way Boussinesq equation is not a valid model in shallow water hydrodynamics. Modulation of nonlinear travelling waves of the complex Klein-Gordon equation is used to illustrate the theory.

    2013-12-01

    The generalized Boussinesq equation is a nonlinear diffusion equation where hydraulic conductivity is a power-law function of hydraulic head. In the traditional Boussinesq equation it is a linear function of hydraulic head. The generalized Boussinesq equation models flows of gases through porous media and flows of water in forest soils and concretes. Also, when the hydraulic conductivity is a power-law function of elevation we obtain this equation. We model a one-dimensional semi-infinite initially empty aquifer with boundary conditions at the inlet in rectangular coordinates. We introduce similarity variables to reduce the initial-boundary value problem to a boundary value problem for a nonlinear ordinary differential equation. We construct an approximate solution that preserves certain properties of the true solution and replicated known exact solutions.

    The behavior of solitons induced by boundary excitation is investigated at various time-dependent conditions and different unperturbed water depths, using the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation. Then, solitons induced from Boussinesq equations under similar conditions were studied, making it possible to remove the restriction in the KdV equation and to treat soliton head-on collisions (as well as overtaking collisions) and reflections. It is found that the results obtained from the KdV and the Boussinesq equations are in good agreement.

  15. An integrable semi-discretization of the Boussinesq equation

    2016-10-01

    In this paper, we present an integrable semi-discretization of the Boussinesq equation. Different from other discrete analogues, we discretize the 'time' variable and get an integrable differential-difference system. Under a standard limitation, the differential-difference system converges to the continuous Boussinesq equation such that the discrete system can be used to design numerical algorithms. Using Hirota's bilinear method, we find a Bäcklund transformation and a Lax pair of the differential-difference system. For the case of 'good' Boussinesq equation, we investigate the soliton solutions of its discrete analogue and design numerical algorithms. We find an effective way to reduce the phase shift caused by the discretization. The numerical results coincide with our analysis.

    Full Text Available We propose alternative forms of the Boussinesq equations which extend the equations of Madsen and Schäffer by introducing extra nonlinear terms during enhancement. Theoretical analysis shows that nonlinear characteristics are considerably improved. A numerical implementation of one-dimensional equations is described. Three tests involving strongly nonlinear evolution, namely, regular waves propagating over an elevated bar feature in a tank with an otherwise constant depth, wave group transformation over constant water depth, and nonlinear shoaling of unsteady waves over a sloping beach, are simulated by the model. The model is found to be effective.

    2014-09-01

    This paper is concerned with the global well-posedness and inviscid limits of several systems of Boussinesq equations with fractional dissipation. Three main results are proven. The first result assesses the global regularity of two systems of equations close to the critical 2D Boussinesq equations. This is achieved by examining their inviscid limits. The second result relates the global regularity of a general system of d-dimensional Boussinesq equations to that of its formal inviscid limit. The third obtains the global existence, uniqueness and inviscid limit of a system of 2D Boussinesq equations with the Yudovich-type initial data.

    1993-01-01

    We construct new coset realizations of infinite-dimensional linear $W_3^{\\infty}$ symmetry associated with Zamolodchikov's $W_3$ algebra which are different from the previously explored $sl_3$ Toda realization of $W_3^{\\infty}$. We deduce the Boussinesq and modified Boussinesq equations as constraints on the geometry of the corresponding coset manifolds.The main characteristic features of these realizations are:i. Among the coset parameters there are the space and time coordinates $x$ and $t$ which enter the Boussinesq equations, all other coset parameters are regarded as fields depending on these coordinates;ii. The spin 2 and 3 currents of $W_3$ and two spin 1 $U(1)$ Kac- Moody currents as well as two spin 0 fields related to the $W_3$currents via Miura maps, come out as the only essential parameters-fields of these cosets. The remaining coset fields are covariantly expressed through them;iii.The Miura maps get a new geometric interpretation as $W_3^{\\infty}$ covariant constraints which relate the above fie...

Research of the nonlinear differential equations is the subject of differential equations,especially nonlinear partial dif-ferential equations. Many significant natural science and engineering problems can be attributed to nonlinear partial differential equation. In addition,with the development of research,some of the o-riginal with linear partial differential equation approximation problem must also consider nonlinear effects. From the traditional point of view,the exact solution of partial differential equation is very dif-ficult.

    Nonlinear water wave propagation passing a submerged shelf is studied experimentally and numerically. The applicability of two different wave propagation models has been investigated. One is higher-order Boussinesq equationsderived by Zou (1999) and the other is the classic Boussinesq equations. Physical experiments are conducted, three differ-ent front slopes (1:10, 1:5 and 1:2) of the shelf are set up in the experiment and their effects on wave propagation are in-vestigated. Comparisons of numerical results with test data are made, the model of higher-order Boussinesq equationsagrees much better with the measurements than the model of the classical Boussinesq equations. The results show thatthe higher-order Boussinesq equations can also be applied to the steeper slope case although the mild slope assumption isemployed in the derivation of the higher order terms of higher order Boussinesq equations.

    The Boussinesq equation is one of important prototypic models in nonlinear physics. Various nonlinear excitations of the Boussinesq equation have been found by many methods. However, it is very difficult to find interaction solutions among different types of nonlinear excitations. In this peper, two equivalent very simple methods, the truncated Painlevé analysis and the generalized tanh function expansion approaches, are developed to find interaction solutions between solitons and any other types of Boussinesq waves.

    The Bäcklund transformation related symmetry is nonlocal, which is hard to be applied in constructing solutions for nonlinear equations. In this paper, the residual symmetry of the Boussinesq equation is localized to Lie point symmetry by introducing multiple new variables. By applying the general Lie point method, two main results are obtained: a new type of Bäcklund transformation is derived, from which new solutions can be generated from old ones; the similarity reduction solutions as well as corresponding reduction equations are found. The localization procedure provides an effective way to investigate interaction solutions between nonlinear waves and solitons.

    2010-01-01

    We study the interactions between the thermodynamic transition and hydrodynamic flows which would characterise a thermo- and hydro-dynamic evolution of a binary mixture in a dissolution/nucleation process. The primary attention is given to the slow dissolution dynamics. The Cahn-Hilliard approach is used to model the behaviour of evolving and diffusing interfaces. An important peculiarity of the full Cahn-Hilliard-Navier-Stokes equations is the use of the full continuity equation required even for a binary mixture of incompressible liquids, firstly, due to dependence of mixture density on concentration and, secondly, due to strong concentration gradients at liquids' interfaces. Using the multiple-scale method we separate the physical processes occurring on different time scales and, ultimately, provide a strict derivation of the Boussinesq approximation for the Cahn-Hilliard-Navier-Stokes equations. This approximation forms a universal theoretical model that can be further employed for a thermo/hydro-dynamic ...

    Full Text Available This paper presents the general case study of previous works on generalized Boussinesq equations, (Abazari, 2011 and (Kılıcman and Abazari, 2012, that focuses on the application of G′/G-expansion method with the aid of Maple to construct more general exact solutions for the coupled Boussinesq equations. In this work, the mentioned method is applied to construct more general exact solutions of Boussinesq equation and improved Boussinesq equation, which the French scientist Joseph Valentin Boussinesq (1842–1929 described in the 1870s model equations for the propagation of long waves on the surface of water with small amplitude. Our work is motivated by the fact that the G′/G-expansion method provides not only more general forms of solutions but also periodic, solitary waves and rational solutions. The method appears to be easier and faster by means of a symbolic computation.

    Himonas, A. Alexandrou; Mantzavinos, Dionyssios

    2015-05-01

    The initial-boundary value problem for the "good" Boussinesq (GB) equation on the half-line with data in Sobolev spaces is analysed via Fokas' unified transform method and a contraction mapping approach. First, the basic space and time estimates for the linear GB initial value problem are derived and then the corresponding estimates for the initial-boundary value problem with zero initial data are obtained. Using these estimates, the Fokas solution formula for the linear GB on the half-line is shown to belong to appropriate Sobolev spaces. Finally, well-posedness of the nonlinear initial-boundary value problem is established by showing that the mapping defined by Fokas' formula for GB, when the forcing is replaced with the Boussinesq nonlinearity, is a contraction mapping on a ball of the space C ([ 0, T* ] ; Hxs (0, ∞)), s > 1 / 2, where the lifespan T* depends on the size of the initial and boundary data. In addition, this work extends the validity of the solution formulas obtained by the unified method for the linear GB initial-boundary value problem to a broader Sobolev setting.

The decay results may then be obtained by passing to the limit of approximating sequences of solutions. The main tool is the Fourier splitting method.

    In this paper, the complete integrability of the Boussinesq equation in shallow water is systematically investigated. By using generalized Bell's polynomials, its bilinear formalism, bilinear Bäcklund transformations, Lax pairs of the Boussinesq equation are constructed, respectively. By virtue of its Lax equations, we find its infinite conservation laws. All conserved densities and fluxes are obtained by lucid recursion formulas. Furthermore, based on multidimensional Riemann theta functions, we construct periodic wave solutions of the Boussinesq equation. Finally, the relations between the periodic wave solutions and soliton solutions are strictly constructed. The asymptotic behaviors of the periodic waves are also analyzed by a limiting procedure.

  13. Boussinesq approximation of the Cahn-Hilliard-Navier-Stokes equations.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vorobev, Anatoliy

    2010-11-01

    We use the Cahn-Hilliard approach to model the slow dissolution dynamics of binary mixtures. An important peculiarity of the Cahn-Hilliard-Navier-Stokes equations is the necessity to use the full continuity equation even for a binary mixture of two incompressible liquids due to dependence of mixture density on concentration. The quasicompressibility of the governing equations brings a short time-scale (quasiacoustic) process that may not affect the slow dynamics but may significantly complicate the numerical treatment. Using the multiple-scale method we separate the physical processes occurring on different time scales and, ultimately, derive the equations with the filtered-out quasiacoustics. The derived equations represent the Boussinesq approximation of the Cahn-Hilliard-Navier-Stokes equations. This approximation can be further employed as a universal theoretical model for an analysis of slow thermodynamic and hydrodynamic evolution of the multiphase systems with strongly evolving and diffusing interfacial boundaries, i.e., for the processes involving dissolution/nucleation, evaporation/condensation, solidification/melting, polymerization, etc.

    2011-01-01

    We consider the initial-value problem for a system of coupled Boussinesq equations on the infinite line for localised or sufficiently rapidly decaying initial data, generating sufficiently rapidly decaying right- and left-propagating waves. We study the dynamics of weakly nonlinear waves, and using asymptotic multiple-scales expansions and averaging with respect to the fast time, we obtain a hierarchy of asymptotically exact coupled and uncoupled Ostrovsky equations for unidirectional waves. We then construct a weakly nonlinear solution of the initial-value problem in terms of solutions of the derived Ostrovsky equations within the accuracy of the governing equations, and show that there are no secular terms. When coupling parameters are equal to zero, our results yield a weakly nonlinear solution of the initial-value problem for the Boussinesq equation in terms of solutions of the initial-value problems for two Korteweg-de Vries equations, integrable by the Inverse Scattering Transform. We also perform relev...

    SONG Zhi-yao; LI Ling; David Lockington

    2007-01-01

    To the self-similar analytical solution of the Boussinesq equation of groundwater flow in a semi-infinite porous medium, when the hydraulic head at the boundary behaved like a power of time, Barenblatt obtained a power series solution. However, he listed only the first three coefficients and did not give the recurrent formula among the coefficients. A formal proof of convergence of the series did not appear in his works. In this paper, the recurrent formula for the coefficients is obtained by using the method of power series expansion, and the convergence of the series is proven. The results can be easily understood and used by engineers in the catchment hydrology and baseflow studies as well as to solve agricultural drainage problems.

    2012-01-01

    In the present article, we prove the sharp local well-posedness and ill-posedness results for the "good" Boussinesq equation on $\\mathbb{T}$; the initial value problem is locally well-posed in $H^{-1/2}(\\mathbb{T})$ and ill-posed in $H^s(\\mathbb{T})$ for $s-3/8$ given by Oh and Stefanov (2012) to the regularity threshold $H^{-1/2}(\\mathbb{T})$. Similar ideas also establish the sharp local well-posedness in $H^{-1/2}(\\mathbb{R})$ and ill-posedness below $H^{-1/2}$ for the nonperiodic case, which improves the result of Tsugawa and the author (2010) in $H^s(\\mathbb{R})$ with $s>-1/2$ to the limiting regularity.

    We study classical $N=2$ super-$W_3$ algebra and its interplay with $N=2$ supersymmetric extensions of the Boussinesq equation in the framework of the nonlinear realization method and the inverse Higgs - covariant reduction approach. These techniques have been previously applied by us in the bosonic $W_3$ case to give a new geometric interpretation of the Boussinesq hierarchy. Here we deduce the most general $N=2$ super Boussinesq equation and two kinds of the modified $N=2$ super Boussinesq equations, as well as the super Miura maps relating these systems to each other, by applying the covariant reduction to certain coset manifolds of linear $N=2$ super-$W_3^{\\infty}$ symmetry associated with $N=2$ super-$W_3$. We discuss the integrability properties of the equations obtained and their correspondence with the formulation based on the notion of the second hamiltonian structure.

    In tsunami modeling, two different systems of dispersive long wave equations are common: The nonhydrostatic pressure correction for the shallow water equations derived out of the depth-integrated 3D Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations, and the category of Boussinesq-type equations obtained by an expansion in the nondimensional parameters for nonlinearity and dispersion in the Euler equations. The first system uses as an assumption a linear vertical interpolation of the nonhydrostatic pressure, whereas the second system's derivation includes an quadratic vertical interpolation for the nonhydrostatic pressure. In this case the analytical dispersion relations do not coincide. We show that the nonhydrostatic correction with a quadratic vertical interpolation yields an equation set equivalent to the Serre equations, which are 1D Boussinesq-type equations for the case of a horizontal bottom. Now, both systems yield the same analytical dispersion relation according up to the first order with the reference dispersion relation of the linear wave theory. The adjusted model is also compared to other Boussinesq-type equations. The numerical model with the nonhydrostatic correction for the shallow water equations uses Leapfrog timestepping stabilized with the Asselin filter and the P1-PNC1 finite element space discretization. The numerical dispersion relations are computed and compared by employing a testcase of a standing wave in a closed basin. All numerical values match their theoretical expectations.

    For simulating water wave propagation in coastal areas, various Boussinesq-type equations with improved properties in intermediate or deep water have been presented in the past several decades. How to choose proper Boussinesq-type equations has been a practical problem for engineers. In this paper, approaches of improving the characteristics of the equations, i.e. linear dispersion, shoaling gradient and nonlinearity, are reviewed and the advantages and disadvantages of several different Boussinesq-type equations are compared for the applications of these Boussinesq-type equations in coastal engineering with relatively large sea areas. Then for improving the properties of Boussinesq-type equations, a new set of fully nonlinear Boussinseq-type equations with modified representative velocity are derived, which can be used for better linear dispersion and nonlinearity. Based on the method of minimizing the overall error in different ranges of applications, sets of parameters are determined with optimized linear dispersion, linear shoaling and nonlinearity, respectively. Finally, a test example is given for validating the results of this study. Both results show that the equations with optimized parameters display better characteristics than the ones obtained by matching with padé approximation.

    Full Text Available This paper is aimed at constructing fractional power series (FPS solutions of time-space fractional Boussinesq equations using residual power series method (RPSM. Firstly we generalize the idea of RPSM to solve any-order time-space fractional differential equations in high-dimensional space with initial value problems in Rn. Using RPSM, we can obtain FPS solutions of fourth-, sixth-, and 2nth-order time-space fractional Boussinesq equations in R and fourth-order time-space fractional Boussinesq equations in R2 and Rn. Finally, by numerical experiments, it is shown that RPSM is a simple, effective, and powerful method for seeking approximate analytic solutions of fractional differential equations.

    2015-02-01

    This paper studies solutions of the two-dimensional incompressible Boussinesq equations with fractional dissipation. The spatial domain is a periodic box. The Boussinesq equations concerned here govern the coupled evolution of the fluid velocity and the temperature and have applications in fluid mechanics and geophysics. When the dissipation is in the supercritical regime (the sum of the fractional powers of the Laplacians in the velocity and the temperature equations is less than 1), the classical solutions of the Boussinesq equations are not known to be global in time. Leray-Hopf type weak solutions do exist. This paper proves that such weak solutions become eventually regular (smooth after some time ) when the fractional Laplacian powers are in a suitable supercritical range. This eventual regularity is established by exploiting the regularity of a combined quantity of the vorticity and the temperature as well as the eventual regularity of a generalized supercritical surface quasi-geostrophic equation.

    Full Text Available We construct new integrable coupled systems of N = 1 supersymmetric equations and present integrable fermionic extensions of the Burgers and Boussinesq equations. Existence of infinitely many higher symmetries is demonstrated by the presence of recursion operators. Various algebraic methods are applied to the analysis of symmetries, conservation laws, recursion operators, and Hamiltonian structures. A fermionic extension of the Burgers equation is related with the Burgers flows on associative algebras. A Gardner's deformation is found for the bosonic super-field dispersionless Boussinesq equation, and unusual properties of a recursion operator for its Hamiltonian symmetries are described. Also, we construct a three-parametric supersymmetric system that incorporates the Boussinesq equation with dispersion and dissipation but never retracts to it for any values of the parameters.

We use the extended trial equation method to find some different types of exact solutions such as the Jacobi elliptic function solutions, soliton solutions, trigonometric function solutions and rational, exact solutions to the nonlinear coupled Schrodinger Boussinesq equations when the balance number is a positive integer. The performance of this method is reliable, effective and powerful for solving more complicated nonlinear partial differential equations in mathematical physics. The balance number of this method is not constant as we have in other methods. This method allows us to construct many new types of exact solutions. By using the Maple software package we show that all obtained solutions satisfy the original partial differential equations.

    The two-dimensional (2D) incompressible Boussinesq equations model geophysical fluids and play an important role in the study of the Raleigh-Bernard convection. Mathematically this 2D system retains some key features of the 3D Navier-Stokes and Euler equations such as the vortex stretching mechanism. The issue of whether the 2D Boussinesq equations always possess global (in time) classical solutions can be difficult when there is only partial dissipation or no dissipation at all. This paper obtains the global regularity for two partial dissipation cases and proves several global a priori bounds for two other prominent partial dissipation cases. These results take us one step closer to a complete resolution of the global regularity issue for all the partial dissipation cases involving the 2D Boussinesq equations.

By Fourier expansion and some of our solutions, one can obtain discontinuous solutions. In addition, Lie point symmetries are used to simplify our arguments.

In this study, a finite element method was developed to solve the improved Boussinesq equations. A spongy layer was applied at the open boundary of the computational domain to absorb the wave energy.

In addition, we introduce a variant of the 2D Boussinesq equations which is perhaps a more faithful companion of the 3D axisymmetric Euler equations than the usual 2D Boussinesq equations.

    A hybrid numerical method for the hydraulic modeling of a curtain-walled dissipater of reflected waves from breakwa-ters is presented. In this method, a zonal approach that combines a nonlinear weakly dispersive wave (Boussinesq-typeequation) method and a Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) method is used. The Boussinesq-type equation issolved in the far field to describe wave transformation in shallow water. The RANS method is used in the near field to re-solve the turbulent boundary layer and vortex flows around the structure. Suitable matching conditions are enforced at theinterface between the viscous and the Boussinesq region. The Coupled RANS and Boussinesq method successfully resolvesthe vortex characteristics of flow in the vicinity of the structure, while unexpected phenomena like wave re-reflection areeffectively controlled by lengthening the Boussinesq region. Extensive results on hydraulic performance of a curtain-walleddissipater and the mechanism of dissipation of reflected waves are presented, providing a reference for minimization of thebreadth of the water chamber and for determination of the submerged depth of the curtain wall.

    This paper studies the global (in time) regularity problem concerning a system of equations generalizing the two-dimensional incompressible Boussinesq equations. The velocity here is determined by the vorticity through a more singular relation than the standard Biot-Savart law and involves a Fourier multiplier operator. The temperature equation has a dissipative term given by the fractional Laplacian operator √{-Δ}. We establish the global existence and uniqueness of solutions to the initial-value problem of this generalized Boussinesq equations when the velocity is “double logarithmically” more singular than the one given by the Biot-Savart law. This global regularity result goes beyond the critical case. In addition, we recover a result of Chae, Constantin and Wu [8] when the initial temperature is set to zero.

    In this paper we consider the solution of the enhanced Boussinesq equations of Madsen and Sørensen (1992) [55] by means of residual based discretizations. In particular, we investigate the applicability of upwind and stabilized variants of continuous Galerkin finite element and Residual Distribution schemes for the simulation of wave propagation and transformation over complex bathymetries. These techniques have been successfully applied to the solution of the nonlinear Shallow Water equations (see e.g. Hauke (1998) [39] and Ricchiuto and Bollermann (2009) [61]). In a first step toward the construction of a hybrid model coupling the enhanced Boussinesq equations with the Shallow Water equations in breaking regions, this paper shows that equal order and even low order (second) upwind/stabilized techniques can be used to model non-hydrostatic wave propagation over complex bathymetries. This result is supported by theoretical (truncation and dispersion) error analyses, and by thorough numerical validation.

    Shi, Yanling; Xu, Junxiang; Xu, Xindong

    2015-02-01

    In this paper, one-dimensional generalized Boussinesq equation: utt - uxx + (u2 + uxx)xx = 0 with boundary conditions ux(0, t) = ux(π, t) = uxxx(0, t) = uxxx(π, t) = 0 is considered. It is proved that the equation admits a Whitney smooth family of small-amplitude quasi-periodic solutions with 2-dimensional Diophantine frequencies. The proof is based on an infinite dimensional Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser theorem and Birkhoff normal form.

    In this article, a novel (G'/G)-expansion method is proposed to search for the traveling wave solutions of nonlinear evolution equations. We construct abundant traveling wave solutions involving parameters to the Boussinesq equation by means of the suggested method. The performance of the method is reliable and useful, and gives more general exact solutions than the existing methods. The new (G'/G)-expansion method provides not only more general forms of solutions but also cuspon, peakon, soliton, and periodic waves.

    2007-01-01

    An extended Fan's algebraic method is used for constructing exact traveling wave solution of nonlinear partial differential equations. The key idea of this method is to introduce an auxiliary ordinary differential equation which is regarded as an extended elliptic equation and whose degree r is expanded to the case of r > 4. The efficiency of the method is demonstrated by the KdV equation and the variant Boussinesq equations. The results indicate that the method not only offers all solutions obtained by using Fu's and Fan's methods, but also some new solutions.

  16. Spiral-defect chaos: Swift-Hohenberg model versus Boussinesq equations.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Schmitz, Rainer; Pesch, Werner; Zimmermann, Walter

    2002-03-01

    Spiral-defect chaos (SDC) in Rayleigh-Bénard convection is a well-established spatio-temporal complex pattern, which competes with stationary rolls near the onset of convection. The characteristic properties of SDC are accurately described on the basis of the standard three-dimensional Boussinesq equations. As a much simpler and attractive two-dimensional model for SDC generalized Swift-Hohenberg (SH) equations have been extensively used in the literature from the early beginning. Here, we show that the description of SDC by SH models has to be considered with care, especially regarding its long-time dynamics. For parameters used in previous SH simulations, SDC occurs only as a transient in contrast to the experiments and the rigorous solutions of the Boussinesq equations. The small-scale structure of the vorticity field at the spiral cores, which might be crucial for persistent SDC, is presumably not perfectly captured in the SH model.

  17. Small global solutions to the damped two-dimensional Boussinesq equations

    Adhikari, Dhanapati; Cao, Chongsheng; Wu, Jiahong; Xu, Xiaojing

    The two-dimensional (2D) incompressible Euler equations have been thoroughly investigated and the resolution of the global (in time) existence and uniqueness issue is currently in a satisfactory status. In contrast, the global regularity problem concerning the 2D inviscid Boussinesq equations remains widely open. In an attempt to understand this problem, we examine the damped 2D Boussinesq equations and study how damping affects the regularity of solutions. Since the damping effect is insufficient in overcoming the difficulty due to the “vortex stretching”, we seek unique global small solutions and the efforts have been mainly devoted to minimizing the smallness assumption. By positioning the solutions in a suitable functional setting (more precisely, the homogeneous Besov space B˚∞,11), we are able to obtain a unique global solution under a minimal smallness assumption.

Moreover, they were shown to have significantly improved frequency dispersion characteristics, making it suitable for wave simulation from relatively deep to shallow water.

The numerical method is validated against experimen-tal data for one-dimensional nonlinear wave transformation problems. Furthermore, the method is used to illustrate the dispersive effects on tsunami-type of wave propagation.

    The question for linear stability of spatially periodic waves for the Boussinesq equation (the cases $p=2,3$) and the Klein-Gordon-Zakharov system is considered. For a wide class of solutions, we completely and explicitly characterize their linear stability (instability respectively), when the perturbations are taken with the same period $T$. In particular, our results allow us to completely recover the linear stability results, in the limit $T\\to \\infty$, for the whole line case.

Moreover by introducing a new stable set, we present some sufficient conditions on initial data such that the weak solution exists globally at supercritical initial energy level.

    Exact solutions of the atmospheric (2+1)-dimensional nonlinear incompressible non-hydrostatic Boussinesq (INHB) equations are researched by Combining function expansion and symmetry method. By function expansion, several expansion coefficient equations are derived. Symmetries and similarity solutions are researched in order to obtain exact solutions of the INHB equations. Three types of symmetry reduction equations and similarity solutions for the expansion coefficient equations are proposed. Non-traveling wave solutions for the INHB equations are obtained by symmetries of the expansion coefficient equations. Making traveling wave transformations on expansion coefficient equations, we demonstrate some traveling wave solutions of the INHB equations. The evolutions on the wind velocities, temperature perturbation and pressure perturbation are demonstrated by figures, which demonstrate the periodic evolutions with time and space.

    In this Letter, He's homotopy perturbation method (HPM) is implemented for finding the solitary-wave solutions of the regularized long-wave (RLW) and generalized modified Boussinesq (GMB) equations. We obtain numerical solutions of these equations for the initial conditions. We will show that the convergence of the HPM is faster than those obtained by the Adomian decomposition method (ADM). The obtained solutions, in comparison with the exact solutions admit a remarkable accuracy. A clear conclusion can be drawn from the numerical results that the HPM provides highly accurate numerical solutions for nonlinear differential equations.

  15. Analytical solution of Boussinesq equations as a model of wave generation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wiryanto, L. H.; Mungkasi, S.

    2016-02-01

    When a uniform stream on an open channel is disturbed by existing of a bump at the bottom of the channel, the surface boundary forms waves growing splitting and propagating. The model of the wave generation can be a forced Korteweg de Vries (fKdV) equation or Boussinesq-type equations. In case the governing equations are approximated from steady problem, the fKdV equation is obtained. The model gives two solutions representing solitary-like wave, with different amplitude. However, phyically there is only one profile generated from that process. Which solution is occured, we confirm from unsteady model. The Boussinesq equations are proposed to determine the stabil solution of the fKdV equation. From the linear and steady model, its solution is developed to determine the analytical solution of the unsteady equations, so that it can explain the physical phenomena, i.e. the process of the wave generation, wave splitting and wave propagation. The solution can also determine the amplitude and wave speed of the waves.

    2014-10-01

    A new method, homoclinic (heteroclinic) breather limit method (HBLM), for seeking rogue wave solution to nonlinear evolution equation (NEE) is proposed. (1+1)-dimensional Boussinesq equation is used as an example to illustrate the effectiveness of the suggested method. Rational homoclinic wave solution, a new family of two-wave solution, is obtained by inclined periodic homoclinic breather wave solution and is just a rogue wave solution. This result shows that rogue wave originates by the extreme behaviour of homoclinic breather wave in (1+1)-dimensional nonlinear wave fields.

By using the F-expansion, without calculating Jacobi elliptic functions, we obtain simultaneously many periodic wave solutions expressed by various Jacobi elliptic functions for the variant Boussinesq equations. When the modulus m approaches 1 and 0, the hyperbolic function solutions (including the solitary wave solutions) and trigonometric solutions are also given respectively.

  19. Numerical Calculation for Nonlinear Waves in Waterof Arbitrarily Varying Depth with Boussinesq Equations

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    朱良生; 洪广文

    2001-01-01

    Based on the high order nonlinear and dispersive wave equation with a dissipative term, a numerical model for nonlinear waves is developed. It is suitable to calculate wave propagation in water areas with an arbitrarily varying bottom slope and a relative depth h/L0≤1. By the application of the completely implicit stagger grid and central difference algorithm, discrete governing equations are obtained. Although the central difference algorithm of second-order accuracy both in time and space domains is used to yield the difference equations, the order of truncation error in the difference equation is the same as that of the third-order derivatives of the Boussinesq equation. In this paper, the correction to the first-order derivative is made, and the accuracy of the difference equation is improved. The verifications of accuracy show that the results of the numerical model are in good agreement with those of analytical solutions and physical models.

  20. An Improved Nearshore Wave Breaking Model Based on the Fully Nonlinear Boussinesq Equations

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    LI Shao-wu; LI Chun-ying; SHI Zhong; GU Han-bin

    2005-01-01

    This paper aims to propose an improved numerical model for wave breaking in the nearshore region based on the fully nonlinear form of Boussinesq equations. The model uses the κ equation turbulence scheme to determine the eddy viscosity in the Boussinesq equations. To calculate the turbulence production term in the equation, a new formula is derived based on the concept of surface roller. By use of this formula, the turbulence production in the one-equation turbulence scheme is directly related to the difference between the water particle velocity and the wave celerity. The model is verified by Hansen and Svendsen's experimental data (1979) in terms of wave height and setup and setdown. The comparison between the model and experimental results of wave height and setup and setdown shows satisfactory agreement. The modeled turbulence energy decreases as waves attenuate in the surf zone. The modeled production term peaks at the breaking point and decreases as waves propagate shoreward. It is also suggested that both convection and diffusion play their important roles in the transport of turbulence energy immediately after wave breaking. When waves approach to the shoreline, the production and dissipation of turbulence energy are almost balanced. By use of the slot technique for the simulation of the movable shoreline boundary, wave runup in the swash zone is well simulated by the present model.

  1. Existence, Uniqueness, Analyticity, and Borel Summability of Boussinesq and Magnetic Benard Equations

    CERN Document Server

    Rosenblatt, Heather

    2011-01-01

    Through Borel summation methods, we analyze two different variations of the Navier-Stokes equation --the Boussinesq equation and the magnetic Benard equation. This method has previously been applied to the Navier-Stokes equation. We prove that an equivalent system of integral equations in each case has a unique solution, which is exponentially bounded for p in R^{+}, p being the Laplace dual variable of 1/t. This implies the local existence of a classical solution in a complex t-region that includes a real positive time (t)-axis segment. In this formalism, global existence of PDE solutions becomes a problem of asymptotics in the dual variable. Further, it is shown that within the time interval of existence, for analytic initial data and forcing, the solution remains analytic and has the same analyticity strip width. Under these conditions, the solution is Borel summable, implying that the formal series in time is Gevrey-1 asymptotic for small t.

  2. Boundary Conditions for 2D Boussinesq-type Wave-Current Interaction Equations

    Mera M.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available This research focuses on the development of a set of two-dimensional boundary conditions for specific governing equations. The governing equations are existing Boussinesqtype equations which is capable of simulating wave-current interaction. The present boundary conditions consist of for waves only case and for currents only case. To simulate wave-current interaction, the two kinds of the present boundary conditions are then combined. A numerical model based on both the existing governing equations and the present boundary conditions is applied to simulation of currents only and of wave-current interaction propagating over a basin with a submerged shoal. The results of the numerical model show that the present boundary conditions go well with the existing Boussinesq-type wave-current interaction equations.

    2013-12-01

    An existing truncated series solution, previously obtained from inversion techniques from the solution for the Blasius boundary-layer equation, is obtained directly for the Boussinesq equation in terms of a recurrence relation. The series is found to have a finite radius of convergence, which also explains why previous approximations to the solution of the Boussinesq equation had to resort to a combination of series/Padé expressions for small values of the independent variable and asymptotic approximations for large ones. The radius of convergence is obtained numerically to a high accuracy by means of path integration techniques that are able to identify the complex-plane singularities which determine that radius. New variable transformations are proposed for numerical integration of the equation that avoid singularities at the origin, and further asymptotic approximations, which remain necessary due to the finite radius of convergence, are also obtained. The approach can be extended to non-homogeneous boundary conditions at the origin, which is important in realistic scenarios where an aquifer discharges into a channel of finite-depth. Further recurrence relations are found for series solutions of the non-homogeneous case, as well as their radii of convergence and corresponding asymptotic approximations. Results obtained by joining ten terms of the series solution and the asymptotic approximation obtained by Heaslet and Alksne (1961).

    2007-01-01

    We extend the results for 2-D Boussinesq equations from R2 to a bounded domain Ω.First, as for the existence of weak solutions, we trans form Boussinesq equations to a nonlinear evolution equation Ut + A(t, U) = O.In stead of using the methods of fundamental solutions in the case of entire R2, we study the qualities of F(u,v) = (u.▽)v to get some useful estimates for A(t, U), which helps us to conclude the local-in-time existence and uniqueness of solutions.Second, as for blow-up criterions, we use energy methods, Sobolev inequalities and Gronwall inequality to con trol‖θ‖Hs(Ω) and ‖u‖H8(Ω) by ‖▽θ‖L∞(Ω) and‖▽u‖L∞(Ω).Furthermore,‖▽θ‖L∞(Ω) can control ‖▽u‖L∞(Ω) by using vorticity transportation equations.At last, ‖▽θ‖Mφ(Ω) can control ‖▽θ‖L∞(Ω).Thus, we can find a blow up criterion in the form of limt→T* ∫to‖▽θ(.,τ)‖Mφ(Ω)dτ= ∞.

  6. A new dispersion-relation preserving method for integrating the classical Boussinesq equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jang, T. S.

    2017-02-01

    In this paper, a dispersion-relation preserving method is proposed for nonlinear dispersive waves, starting from the oldest weakly nonlinear dispersive wave mathematical model in shallow water waves, i.e., the classical Boussinesq equation. It is a semi-analytic procedure, however, which preserves, as a distinctive feature, the dispersion-relation imbedded in the model equation without adding (unwelcome) numerical effects, i.e., the proposed method has the same dispersion-relation as the original classical Boussinesq equation. This remarkable (dispersion-relation) preserving property is proved mathematically for small wave motion in present study. The property is also numerically examined by observing both the local wave number and the local frequency of a slowly varying water-wave group. The dispersion-relation preserving method proposed here is powerful as well for observing nonlinear wave phenomena such as solitary waves and their collision. In fact, the main features of nonlinear wave characteristics are clearly seen through not only a single propagating solitary wave but counter-propagating (head-on) solitary wave collisions. They are compared with known (exact) nonlinear solutions, the results of which represent a major improvement over existing solution formulations in the literature.

    In this paper, we obtain the soliton solutions for the “good” Boussinesq equation on a constant background. Based on the asymptotic analysis of the solutions, we find that this equation admits both the elastic and resonant soliton interactions, as well as various partially inelastic interactions comprised of such two fundamental interactions. Via picture drawing, we present some examples of soliton interactions on nonzero backgrounds. Our results enrich the knowledge of soliton interactions in the (1+1)-dimensional integrable equation with a single field.

    2016-06-01

    Double criticality and its nonlinear implications are considered for stratified N-layer shallow water flows with N = 1, 2, 3. Double criticality arises when the linearization of the steady problem about a uniform flow has a double zero eigenvalue. We find that there are two types of double criticality: non-semisimple (one eigenvector and one generalized eigenvector) and semi-simple (two independent eigenvectors). Using a multiple scales argument, dictated by the type of singularity, it is shown that the weakly nonlinear problem near double criticality is governed by a two-way Boussinesq equation (non-semisimple case) and a coupled Korteweg-de Vries equation (semisimple case). Parameter values and reduced equations are constructed for the examples of two-layer and three-layer stratified shallow water hydrodynamics.

    Asymptotic regimes of geophysical dynamics are described for different Burger number limits. Rotating Boussinesq equations are analyzed in the asymptotic limit, of strong stratification in the Burger number of order one situation as well as in the asymptotic regime of strong stratification and weak rotation. It is shown that in both regimes horizontally averaged buoyancy variable is an adiabatic invariant for the full Boussinesq system. Spectral phase shift corrections to the buoyancy time scale associated with vertical shearing of this invariant are deduced. Statistical dephasing effects induced by turbulent processes on inertial-gravity waves are evidenced. The 'split' of the energy transfer of the vortical and the wave components is established in the Craya-Herring cyclic basis. As the Burger number increases from zero to infinity, we demonstrate gradual unfreezing of energy cascades for ageostrophic dynamics. The energy spectrum and the anisotropic spectral eddy viscosity are deduced with an explicit dependence on the anisotropic rotation/stratification time scale which depends on the vertical aspect ratio parameter. Intermediate asymptotic regime corresponding to strong stratification and weak rotation is analyzed where the effects of weak rotation are accounted for by an asymptotic expansion with full control (saturation) of vertical shearing. The regularizing effect of weak rotation differs from regularizations based on vertical viscosity. Two scalar prognostic equations for ageostrophic components (divergent velocity potential and geostrophic departure ) are obtained.

    The one-dimensional quasi-stationary flow of inviscid liquid in a shallow layer with free surface is described by the so-called Boussinesq Paradigm Equation (BPE). Slightly generalized this equation appears also in the theory of longitudinal vibrations of rods and in the continuum limit for lattices. It is well known that the one-dimensional (1-D) BPE admits a one-parameter family of traveling wave solutions expressed in an analytic form through the "sech" function. In the present contribution, new analytic solutions to the 1-D BPE representing traveling waves are obtained. These solutions are expressed through Weierstrass and Jacobi elliptic functions, which in some cases reduce to elementary functions.

    2006-01-01

    To investigate the finite time singularity in three-dimensional (3D) Euler flows, the simplified model of 3D axisymmetric incompressible fluids (i.e., two-dimensional Boussinesq approximation equations) is studied numerically. The system describes a cap-like hot zone of fluid rising from the bottom, while the edges of the cap lag behind, forming eye-like vortices. The hot liquid is driven by the buoyancy and meanwhile attracted by the vortices, which leads to the singularity-forming mechanism in our simulation. In the previous 2D Boussinesq simulations, the symmetricial initial data is used. However, it is observed that the adoption of symmetry leads to coordinate singularity. Moreover, as demonstrated in this work that the locations of peak values for the vorticity and the temperature gradient becomes far apart as $t$ approaches the predicted blow-up time. This suggests that the symmetry assumption may be unreasonable for searching solution blow-ups. One of the main contributions of this work is to propose a...

  15. Spatially variable water table recharge and the hillslope hydrologic response: Analytical solutions to the linearized hillslope Boussinesq equation

    2014-11-01

    The linearized hillslope Boussinesq equation, introduced by Brutsaert (1994), describes the dynamics of saturated, subsurface flow from hillslopes with shallow, unconfined aquifers. In this paper, we use a new analytical technique to solve the linearized hillslope Boussinesq equation to predict water table dynamics and hillslope discharge to channels. The new solutions extend previous analytical treatments of the linearized hillslope Boussinesq equation to account for the impact of spatiotemporal heterogeneity in water table recharge. The results indicate that the spatial character of recharge may significantly alter both steady state subsurface storage characteristics and the transient hillslope hydrologic response, depending strongly on similarity measures of controls on the subsurface flow dynamics. Additionally, we derive new analytical solutions for the linearized hillslope-storage Boussinesq equation and explore the interaction effects of recharge structure and hillslope morphology on water storage and base flow recession characteristics. A theoretical recession analysis, for example, demonstrates that decreasing the relative amount of downslope recharge has a similar effect as increasing hillslope convergence. In general, the theory suggests that recharge heterogeneity can serve to diminish or enhance the hydrologic impacts of hillslope morphology.

    The homogeneous balance of undetermined coefficients method (HBUCM) is firstly proposed to construct not only the exact traveling wave solutions, three-wave solutions, homoclinic solutions, N-soliton solutions, but also multi-symplectic structures of some nonlinear partial differential equations (NLPDEs). By applying the proposed method to the variant Boussinesq equations (VBEs), the exact combined traveling wave solutions and a multi-symplectic structure of the VBEs are obtained directly. Then, the definition and a multi-symplectic structure of the variant Boussinesq-Whitham-Broer-Kaup type equations (VBWBKTEs) which can degenerate to the VBEs, the Whitham-Broer-Kaup equations (WBKEs) and the Broer-Kaup equations (BKEs) are given in the multi-symplectic sense. The HBUCM is also a standard and computable method, which can be generalized to obtain the exact solutions and multi-symplectic structures for some types of NLPDEs.

  20. Derivation of dissipative Boussinesq equations using the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator approach

    2011-01-01

    The water wave theory traditionally assumes the fluid to be perfect, thus neglecting all effects of the viscosity. However, the explanation of several experimental data sets requires the explicit inclusion of dissipative effects. In order to meet these practical problems, the theory of visco-potential flows has been developed (see P.-F. Liu & A. Orfila (2004) and D. Dutykh & F. Dias (2007)). Then, usually this formulation is further simplified by developing the potential in an entire series in the vertical coordinate and by introducing thus, the long wave approximation. In the present study we propose a derivation of dissipative Boussinesq equations which is based on asymptotic expansions of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann (D2N) operator. Both employed methods yield the same system by different ways.

    2016-06-01

    We prove the global well-posedness of the two-dimensional Boussinesq equations with only vertical dissipation. The initial data {(u_0,θ_0)} are required to be only in the space X={fin L^2(R^2) | partialx f in L^2(R^2)}, and thus our result generalizes that of Cao and Wu (Arch Rational Mech Anal, 208:985-1004, 2013), where the initial data are assumed to be in {H^2(R^2)}. The assumption on the initial data is at the minimal level that is required to guarantee the uniqueness of the solutions. A logarithmic type limiting Sobolev embedding inequality for the {L^∞(R^2)} norm, in terms of anisotropic Sobolev norms, and a logarithmic type Gronwall inequality are established to obtain the global in time a priori estimates, which guarantee the local solution to be a global one.

    2016-08-01

    Stability of stationary solutions of the Oberbeck-Boussinesq system (OB) and the corresponding artificial compressible system is considered. The latter system is obtained by adding the time derivative of the pressure with small parameter {ɛ > 0} to the continuity equation of (OB), which was proposed by A. Chorin to find stationary solutions of (OB) numerically. Both systems have the same sets of stationary solutions and the system (OB) is obtained from the artificial compressible one as the limit {ɛ to 0} which is a singular limit. It is proved that if a stationary solution of the artificial compressible system is stable for sufficiently small {ɛ > 0} , then it is also stable as a solution of (OB). The converse is proved provided that the velocity field of the stationary solution satisfies some smallness condition.

    2011-01-01

    This paper establishes the global in time existence of classical solutions to the 2D anisotropic Boussinesq equations with vertical dissipation. When only the vertical dissipation is present, there is no direct control on the horizontal derivatives and the global regularity problem is very challenging. To solve this problem, we bound the derivatives in terms of the $L^\\infty$-norm of the vertical velocity $v$ and prove that $\\|v\\|_{L^{r}}$ with $2\\le r<\\infty$ at any time does not grow faster than $\\sqrt{r \\log r}$ as $r$ increases. A delicate interpolation inequality connecting $\\|v\\|_{L^\\infty}$ and $\\|v\\|_{L^r}$ then yields the desired global regularity.

    There has been significant renewed interest in dissolution-driven convection in porous layers owing to the potential impact of this process on carbon dioxide storage in terrestrial aquifers. In this talk, we present some numerically-exact equilibrium solutions to the porous medium convection problem in small laterally-periodic domains at high Rayleigh number Ra . The ``uni-cellular'' equilibrium solutions first found by Corson and Chini (2011) by solving the steady Darcy-Oberbeck-Boussinesq equations are recovered and, in the interior (i.e. away from upper and lower boundary layers), are shown to have the same horizontal-mean structure as the ``heat-exchanger'' solutions identified by Hewitt et al. (2012). Secondary stability analysis of the steady solutions is performed, and implications for high-Ra porous medium convection are discussed.

    Schemes for the incompressible Navier-Stokes and Boussinesq equations are formulated and derived combining the novel Hybridizable Discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) method, a projection method, and Implicit-Explicit Runge-Kutta (IMEX-RK) time-integration schemes. We employ an incremental pressure correction and develop the corresponding HDG finite element discretization including consistent edge-space fluxes for the velocity predictor and pressure correction. We then derive the proper forms of the element-local and HDG edge-space final corrections for both velocity and pressure, including the HDG rotational correction. We also find and explain a consistency relation between the HDG stability parameters of the pressure correction and velocity predictor. We discuss and illustrate the effects of the time-splitting error. We then detail how to incorporate the HDG projection method time-split within standard IMEX-RK time-stepping schemes. Our high-order HDG projection schemes are implemented for arbitrary, mixed-element unstructured grids, with both straight-sided and curved meshes. In particular, we provide a quadrature-free integration method for a nodal basis that is consistent with the HDG method. To prevent numerical oscillations, we develop a selective nodal limiting approach. Its applications show that it can stabilize high-order schemes while retaining high-order accuracy in regions where the solution is sufficiently smooth. We perform spatial and temporal convergence studies to evaluate the properties of our integration and selective limiting schemes and to verify that our solvers are properly formulated and implemented. To complete these studies and to illustrate a range of properties for our new schemes, we employ an unsteady tracer advection benchmark, a manufactured solution for the steady diffusion and Stokes equations, and a standard lock-exchange Boussinesq problem.

  9. A moist Boussinesq shallow water equations set for testing atmospheric models

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zerroukat, M.; Allen, T.

    2015-06-01

    The shallow water equations have long been used as an initial test for numerical methods applied to atmospheric models with the test suite of Williamson et al. [1] being used extensively for validating new schemes and assessing their accuracy. However the lack of physics forcing within this simplified framework often requires numerical techniques to be reworked when applied to fully three dimensional models. In this paper a novel two-dimensional shallow water equations system that retains moist processes is derived. This system is derived from three-dimensional Boussinesq approximation of the hydrostatic Euler equations where, unlike the classical shallow water set, we allow the density to vary slightly with temperature. This results in extra (or buoyancy) terms for the momentum equations, through which a two-way moist-physics dynamics feedback is achieved. The temperature and moisture variables are advected as separate tracers with sources that interact with the mean-flow through a simplified yet realistic bulk moist-thermodynamic phase-change model. This moist shallow water system provides a unique tool to assess the usually complex and highly non-linear dynamics-physics interactions in atmospheric models in a simple yet realistic way. The full non-linear shallow water equations are solved numerically on several case studies and the results suggest quite realistic interaction between the dynamics and physics and in particular the generation of cloud and rain.

    2014-08-01

    A new methodology is presented to handle wave breaking over complex bathymetries in extended two-dimensional Boussinesq-type (BT) models which are solved by an unstructured well-balanced finite volume (FV) scheme. The numerical model solves the 2D extended BT equations proposed by Nwogu (1993), recast in conservation law form with a hyperbolic flux identical to that of the Non-linear Shallow Water (NSW) equations. Certain criteria, along with their proper implementation, are established to characterize breaking waves. Once breaking waves are recognized, we switch locally in the computational domain from the BT to NSW equations by suppressing the dispersive terms in the vicinity of the wave fronts. Thus, the shock-capturing features of the FV scheme enable an intrinsic representation of the breaking waves, which are handled as shocks by the NSW equations. An additional methodology is presented on how to perform a stable switching between the BT and NSW equations within the unstructured FV framework. Extensive validations are presented, demonstrating the performance of the proposed wave breaking treatment, along with some comparisons with other well-established wave breaking mechanisms that have been proposed for BT models.

  11. Polynomial-based approximate solutions to the Boussinesq equation near a well

    Telyakovskiy, Aleksey S.; Kurita, Satoko; Allen, Myron B.

    2016-10-01

    This paper presents a method for constructing polynomial-based approximate solutions to the Boussinesq equation with cylindrical symmetry. This equation models water injection at a single well in an unconfined aquifer; as a sample problem we examine recharge of an initially empty aquifer. For certain injection regimes it is possible to introduce similarity variables, reducing the original problem to a boundary-value problem for an ordinary differential equation. The approximate solutions introduced here incorporate both a singular part to model the behavior near the well and a polynomial part to model the behavior in the far field. Although the nonlinearity of the problem prevents decoupling of the singular and polynomial parts, the paper presents an approach for calculating the solution based on its spatial moments. This approach yields closed-form expressions for the position of the wetting front and for the form of the phreatic surface. Comparison with a highly accurate numerical solution verifies the accuracy of the newly derived approximate solutions.

    2016-04-01

    An approximate solution is presented to the 1-D Boussinesq equation (BEQ) characterizing transient groundwater flow in an unconfined aquifer subject to a constant water variation at the sloping water-land boundary. The flow equation is decomposed to a linearized BEQ and a head correction equation. The linearized BEQ is solved using a Laplace transform. By means of the frozen-coefficient technique and Gauss function method, the approximate solution for the head correction equation can be obtained, which is further simplified to a closed-form expression under the condition of local energy equilibrium. The solutions of the linearized and head correction equations are discussed from physical concepts. Especially for the head correction equation, the well posedness of the approximate solution obtained by the frozen-coefficient method is verified to demonstrate its boundedness, which can be further embodied as the upper and lower error bounds to the exact solution of the head correction by statistical analysis. The advantage of this approximate solution is in its simplicity while preserving the inherent nonlinearity of the physical phenomenon. Comparisons between the analytical and numerical solutions of the BEQ validate that the approximation method can achieve desirable precisions, even in the cases with strong nonlinearity. The proposed approximate solution is applied to various hydrological problems, in which the algebraic expressions that quantify the water flow processes are derived from its basic solutions. The results are useful for the quantification of stream-aquifer exchange flow rates, aquifer response due to the sudden reservoir release, bank storage and depletion, and front position and propagation speed.

    The Boussinesq groundwater equation is widely used in hydrology to predict streamflow from an unconfined aquifer and derive the aquifer's saturated hydraulic conductivity and drainable porosity, and to predict water table height in drainage engineering. In this work, we solve this equation in an unconfined horizontal aquifer for nonhomogeneous boundary conditions for the water table height. The solution is found in the form of a Taylor series that has a finite radius of convergence, which is different for each initial condition. We also present an expression for the flux boundary condition at the origin as a function of the depth of the adjoining stream that automatically satisfies the boundary condition at infinity, and thus eliminates the need for a trial-and-error approach for the solution, which is accurate to 10-7. In order to obtain an approximation for the water table height in the region where the series solution diverges, first we computed a diagonal Padé approximation from the series coefficients, which converges in a larger interval than the series, and then we matched it with a new asymptotic approximation for large values of the independent variable. We found that the proposed matched solution is better suited to cases where the water head at the origin is close to the initial water head in the aquifer.

The fourth order GMB equation involves the arbitrary function and mixed derivative terms in highest derivative. The partial Noether’s approach yields seven conserved vectors for GMB equation and one conserved for vector KS equation. Due to presence of mixed derivative term the conserved vectors for GMB equation derived by the Noether like theorem do not satisfy the divergence relationship. The extra terms that constitute the trivial part of conserved vectors are adjusted and the resulting conserved vectors satisfy the divergence property. The double reduction theory yields two independent solutions and one reduction for GMB equation and one solution for KS equation. For CH equation two independent solutions are obtained elsewhere by double reduction theory with the help of conserved Vectors.

    Both the direct method due to Clarkson and Kruskal and the improved direct method due to Lou are extended to reduce the high-order modified Boussinesq equation with the damping term (HMBEDT) arising in the general Fermi-Pasta-Ulam model. As a result, several types of similarity reductions are obtained. It is easy to show that the nonlinear wave equation is not integrable under the sense of AblowRz's conjecture from the reduction results obtained. In addition, kink-shaped solitary wave solutions, which are of important physical significance, are found for HMBEDT based on the obtained reduction equation.``

    The 2d Boussinesq equations model large scale atmospheric and oceanic flows. Whether its solutions develop a singularity in finite-time remains a classical open problem in mathematical fluid dynamics. In this work, blowup from smooth nontrivial initial velocities in stagnation-point form solutions of this system is established. On an infinite strip Ω = { (x, y) ∈ [ 0, 1 ] ×R+ }, we consider velocities of the form u = (f (t, x), - yfx (t, x)), with scalar temperature θ = yρ (t, x). Assuming fx (0, x) attains its global maximum only at points xi* located on the boundary of [ 0, 1 ], general criteria for finite-time blowup of the vorticity - yfxx (t, xi*) and the time integral of fx (t, xi*) are presented. Briefly, for blowup to occur it is sufficient that ρ (0, x) ≥ 0 and f (t, xi*) = ρ (0, xi*) = 0, while - yfxx (0, xi*) ≠ 0. To illustrate how vorticity may suppress blowup, we also construct a family of global exact solutions. A local-existence result and additional regularity criteria in terms of the time integral of ‖fx (t, ṡ) ‖ L∞ ([ 0, 1 ]) are also provided.

    Under investigation in this work is a generalized (2+1)-dimensional Boussinesq equation, which can be used to describe the propagation of small-amplitude, long wave in shallow water. By virtue of Bell's polynomials, an effective way is presented to succinctly construct its bilinear form. Furthermore, based on the bilinear formalism and the extended homoclinic test method, the breather wave solution, rogue-wave solution and solitary-wave solution of the equation are well constructed. Our results can be used to enrich the dynamical behavior of the generalized (2+1)-dimensional nonlinear wave fields.

    A local discontinuous Galerkin method for Boussinesq-Green-Naghdi equations is presented and validated against experimental results for wave transformation over a submerged shoal. Currently Green-Naghdi equations have many variants. In this paper a numerical method in one dimension is presented for the Green-Naghdi equations based on rotational characteristics in the velocity field. Stability criterion is also established for the linearized Green-Naghdi equations for both the analytical problem and the numerical method. Verification is done against a linearized standing wave problem in flat bathymetry and h, p (denoted by K in this paper) error rates are plotted. Validation plots show good agreement of the numerical results with the experimental ones.

    1997-01-01

    We study solitary-wave and kink-wave solutions of a modified Boussinesq equation through a multiple-time reductive perturbation method. We use appropriated modified Korteweg-de Vries hierarchies to eliminate secular producing terms in each order of the perturbative scheme. We show that the multiple-time variables needed to obtain a regular perturbative series are completely determined by the associated linear theory in the case of a solitary-wave solution, but requires the knowledge of each order of the perturbative series in the case of a kink-wave solution. These appropriate multiple-time variables allow us to show that the solitary-wave as well as the kink-wave solutions of the modified Botussinesq equation are actually respectively a solitary-wave and a kink-wave satisfying all the equations of suitable modified Korteweg-de Vries hierarchies.

  5. From a breather homoclinic wave to a rogue wave solution for the coupled Schrödinger-Boussinesq equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wang, Chuanjian; Dai, Zhengde; Liu, Changfu

    2014-07-01

    In this paper, two types of multi-parameter breather homoclinic wave solutions—including breather homoclinic wave and rational homoclinic wave solutions—are obtained by using the Hirota technique and ansätz with complexity of parameter for the coupled Schrödinger-Boussinesq equation. Rogue waves in the form of the rational homoclinic solution are derived when the periods of breather homoclinic wave go to infinite. Some novel features of homoclinic wave solutions are discussed and presented. In contrast to the normal bright rogue wave structure, a structure like a four-petaled flower in temporal-spatial distribution is exhibited. Further with the change of the wave number of the plane wave, the bright and dark rogue wave structures may change into each other. The bright rogue wave structure results from the full merger of two nearby peaks, and the dark rogue wave structure results from the full merger of two nearby holes. The dark rogue wave for the uncoupled Boussinesq equation is finally obtained. Its structural properties show that it never takes on bright rogue wave features with the change of parameter. It is hoped that these results might provide us with useful information on the dynamics of the relevant fields in physics.

    In hydrology the slow, subsurface component of the discharge is usually referred to as base flow. One method to model base flow is the conceptual approach, in which the complex physical reality is simplified using hypotheses and assumptions, and the various physical processes are described mathematically. The purpose of this paper is to develop and validate a conceptual method, based on hydraulic theory, to calculate the base flow of a catchment, under observed precipitation rates. The governing groundwater equation, the Boussinesq equation, valid for a unit width sloping aquifer, is linearized and solved for a temporally variable recharge rate. The solution allows the calculation of the transient water table profile in and the outflow from an aquifer under temporally variable recharge rates. When a catchment is considered a metahillslope, the solution can be used, when coupled to a routing model, to calculate the catchment base flow. The model is applied to the Zwalm catchment and four subcatchments in Belgium. The results suggest that it is possible to model base flow at the catchment scale, using a Boussinesq-based metahillslope model. The results further indicate that it is sufficient to use a relatively simple formulation of the infiltration, overland flow, and base flow processes to obtain reasonable estimates of the total catchment discharge.

    Bian, Dongfen; Gui, Guilong

    2016-08-01

    This paper is concerned with the two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamics-Boussinesq system with the temperature-dependent viscosity, thermal diffusivity and electrical conductivity. The first progress on this topic was made independently by Chae and Hou-Li [8,26] where the Boussinesq system with partial constant viscosity is obtained. Recently, Wang-Zhang [45] considered the temperature-dependent viscosity and thermal diffusivity, and Li-Xu [16] generalized the Wang-Zhang's result to the inviscid case with temperature-dependent thermal diffusivity. In this paper, we include the stratification and magnetic effects and consider the full system, in the framework of low regularity. We prove that, without any smallness assumption on the initial data, the full system is globally well-posed. Moreover, by applying the uniformly bounded generalized Oseen operator, time decay estimate of the solution is obtained.

    We prove that the "good" Boussinesq model with the periodic boundary condition is locally well-posed in the space $H^{s}\\times H^{s-2}$ for $s > -3/8$. In the proof, we employ the normal form approach, which allows us to explicitly extract the rougher part of the solution. This also leads to the conclusion that the remainder is in a smoother space $C([0,T], H^{s+a}), where $0 -1/4$.

    Full Text Available The stabilized Gauge-Uzawa method (SGUM, which is a 2nd-order projection type algorithm used to solve Navier-Stokes equations, has been newly constructed in the work of Pyo, 2013. In this paper, we apply the SGUM to the evolution Boussinesq equations, which model the thermal driven motion of incompressible fluids. We prove that SGUM is unconditionally stable, and we perform error estimations on the fully discrete finite element space via variational approach for the velocity, pressure, and temperature, the three physical unknowns. We conclude with numerical tests to check accuracy and physically relevant numerical simulations, the Bénard convection problem and the thermal driven cavity flow.

    2011-01-01

    We investigate large time existence of solutions of the Navier-Stokes-Boussinesq equations with spatially almost periodic large data when the density stratification is sufficiently large. In 1996, Kimura and Herring \\cite{KH} examined numerical simulations to show a stabilizing effect due to the stratification. They observed scattered two-dimensional pancake-shaped vortex patches lying almost in the horizontal plane. Our result is a mathematical justification of the presence of such two-dimensional pancakes. To show the existence of solutions for large times, we use $\\ell^1$-norm of amplitudes. Existence for large times is then proven using techniques of fast singular oscillating limits and bootstrapping argument from a global-in-time unique solution of the system of limit equations.

    The Cauchy problem for the wave equations of Boussinesq type is treated by considering the initial conditions taken from the solution of generalized Cauchy problem for the potential model of tsunami with some "simple" impulsive source under the assumption that the depth of the liquid is constant. The solutions of the problem under consideration are derived in the form of a single integral giving the wave height at every point of observation at any time moment after the pulsed action of the source. The results of comparing the time history of the the height of tsunami waves at different distances from the source for different values of its characteristic radius (these histories are calculated using two solutions, namely, the solution derived here and the solution known for the potential tsunami model) are described. Conclusions concerning the accuracy of the tested solutions are made.

    2014-11-01

    We investigate numerically the time evolution and stability of some known 1D soliton solutions of Boussinesq paradigm equation in 1D and in a 2D setting. A moving frame coordinate system helps us to keep the structures in the center of the computational domain, where the grid is much finer. The numerical experiments show that the stable 1D solutions preserve themselves for very large times. The corresponding solutions of the 2D problem for the same parameters and in narrow in the y-direction domains also preserve their shape for very large times. But the solutions of the 2D problem in wide in the y-direction domains seem to be not stable - the waves preserve their shape in relatively long intervals of time (depending on the parameters), but after that the waves lose their constant profile in the y-direction. The number of the maxima, which appear in the y-direction, strongly depends on the size of the domain in this direction, as well as on the problem's parameters.

    2006-01-01

    Subsurface runoff in a land surface model is usually parameterized as a single-valued function of total storage in a basin aquifer reservoir. This kind of parameterization is often single-valued function of storage-discharge under a steady or "quasi-steady" state, which cannot represent the influence of aquifer recharge on subsurface runoff generation. In this paper, a new subsurface runoff parameterization with water storage and recharge based on the Boussinesq-storage equation is developed. This model is validated by a subsurface flow separation algorithm for an example river basin, which shows that the new model can simulate the subsurface flow reasonably.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mohammad H. Jabbari

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Using one-dimensional Beji & Nadaoka extended Boussinesq equation, a numerical study of solitary waves over submerged breakwaters has been conducted. Two different obstacles of rectangular as well as circular geometries over the seabed inside a channel have been considered in view of solitary waves passing by. Since these bars possess sharp vertical edges, they cannot directly be modeled by Boussinesq equations. Thus, sharply sloped lines over a short span have replaced the vertical sides, and the interactions of waves including reflection, transmission, and dispersion over the seabed with circular and rectangular shapes during the propagation have been investigated. In this numerical simulation, finite element scheme has been used for spatial discretization. Linear elements along with linear interpolation functions have been utilized for velocity components and the water surface elevation. For time integration, a fourth-order Adams-Bashforth-Moulton predictor-corrector method has been applied. Results indicate that neglecting the vertical edges and ignoring the vortex shedding would have minimal effect on the propagating waves and reflected waves with weak nonlinearity.

    Two energy-preserving schemes are proposed for the "good" Boussinesq (GBq) equation using the Hamiltonian Boundary Value and Fourier pseudospectral methods. The equation is discretized in space by Fourier pseudospectral method and in time by Hamiltonian Boundary Value methods (HBVMs). The outstanding advantages of the proposed schemes are that they can precisely conserve the global mass and energy, and provide highly accurate results. The single solitary wave, the interaction of two solitary waves and the birth of solitary waves are presented to validate the accuracy and conservation properties of the proposed schemes. In addition, we also compare our numerical results with other known studied methods in terms of numerical accuracy and conservation properties.

    Full Text Available This work is concerned with the random dynamics of two-dimensional stochastic Boussinesq system with dynamical boundary condition. The white noises affect the system through a dynamical boundary condition. Using a method based on the theory of omega-limit compactness of a random dynamical system, we prove that the L2-random attractor for the generated random dynamical system is exactly the H1-random attractor. This improves a recent conclusion derived by Brune et al. on the existence of the L2-random attractor for the same system.

    New results are obtained for global regularity and long-time behavior of the solutions to the 2D Boussinesq equations for the flow of an incompressible fluid with positive viscosity and zero diffusivity in a smooth bounded domain. Our first result for global boundedness of the solution {(u, θ)} in {D(A)× H^1} improves considerably the main result of the recent article (Hu et al. in J Math Phys 54(8):081507, 2013). Our second result on global boundedness of the solution {(u, θ)} in {V× H^1} for both bounded domain and the whole space {{R}2} is a new one. It has been open and also seems much more challenging than the first result. Global regularity of the solution {(u, θ)} in {D(A)× H2} is also proved.

    Full Text Available Flows of a viscous incompressible liquid with a thermocapillary boundary are investigated numerically on the basis of the mathematical model that consists of the Oberbeck-Boussinesq approximation of the Navier-Stokes equations, kinematic and dynamic conditions at the free boundary and of the slip boundary conditions at solid walls. We assume that the constant temperature is kept on the solid walls. On the thermocapillary gas-liquid interface the condition of the third order for temperature is imposed. The numerical algorithm based on a finite-difference scheme of the second order approximation on space and time has been constructed. The numerical experiments are performed for water under conditions of normal and low gravity for different friction coefficients and different values of the interphase heat transfer coefficient.

Our first result for global boundedness of the solution {(u, θ)} in {D(A)× H^1} improves considerably the main result of the recent article (Hu et al. in J Math Phys 54(8):081507, 2013). Our second result on global boundedness of the solution {(u, θ)} in {V× H^1} for both bounded domain and the whole space R2 is a new one. It has been open and also seems much more challenging than the first result. Global regularity of the solution {(u, θ)} in {D(A)× H2} is also proved.

  14. Linear and non-linear stability analysis for finite difference discretizations of high-order Boussinesq equations

    2004-01-01

    This paper considers a method of lines stability analysis for finite difference discretizations of a recently published Boussinesq method for the study of highly non-linear and extremely dispersive water waves. The analysis demonstrates the near-equivalence of classical linear Fourier (von Neumann......) techniques with matrix-based methods for formulations in both one and two horizontal dimensions. The matrix-based method is also extended to show the local de-stabilizing effects of the non-linear terms, as well as the stabilizing effects of numerical dissipation. A comparison of the relative stability...... moderately non-normal, suggesting that the eigenvalues are likely suitable for analysis purposes. Numerical experiments demonstrate excellent agreement with the linear analysis, and good qualitative agreement with the local non-linear analysis. The various methods of analysis combine to provide significant...

    This paper presents a numerical model based on one-dimensional Beji and Nadaoka's Extended Boussinesq equations for simulation of periodic wave shoaling and its decomposition over morphological beaches. A unique Galerkin finite element and Adams-Bashforth-Moulton predictor-corrector methods are employed for spatial and temporal discretization, respectively. For direct application of linear finite element method in spatial discretization, an auxiliary variable is hereby introduced, and a particular numerical scheme is offered to rewrite the equations in lower-order form. Stability of the suggested numerical method is also analyzed. Subsequently, in order to display the ability of the presented model, four different test cases are considered. In these test cases, dispersive and nonlinearity effects of the periodic waves over sloping beaches and barred beaches, which are the common coastal profiles, are investigated. Outputs are compared with other existing numerical and experimental data. Finally, it is concluded that the current model can be further developed to model any morphological development of coastal profiles.

    2016-01-01

    The \\emph{equations of Boussinesq approximation} (EBA) for an incompressible and inhomogeneous in density fluid are analyzed from a viewpoint of the asymptotic theory. A systematic scaling shows that there is an infinite number of related asymptotic models. We have divided them into three classes: `poor', `reasonable' and `good' Boussinesq approximations. Each model can be characterized by two parameters $q$ and $k$, where $q =1, 2, 3, \\dots$ and $k=0, \\pm 1, \\pm 2,\\dots$. Parameter $q$ is related to the `quality' of approximation, while $k$ gives us an infinite set of possible scales of velocity, time, viscosity, \\emph{etc.} Increasing $q$ improves the quality of a model, but narrows the limits of its applicability. Parameter $k$ allows us to vary the scales of time, velocity and viscosity and gives us the possibility to consider any initial and boundary conditions. In general, we discover and classify a rich variety of possibilities and restrictions, which are hidden behind the routine use of the Boussinesq...

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available Consideration is given to the influence of an underwater landslide on waves at the surface of a shallow body of fluid. The equations of motion that govern the evolution of the barycenter of the landslide mass include various dissipative effects due to bottom friction, internal energy dissipation, and viscous drag. The surface waves are studied in the Boussinesq scaling, with time-dependent bathymetry. A numerical model for the Boussinesq equations is introduced that is able to handle time-dependent bottom topography, and the equations of motion for the landslide and surface waves are solved simultaneously. The numerical solver for the Boussinesq equations can also be restricted to implement a shallow-water solver, and the shallow-water and Boussinesq configurations are compared. A particular bathymetry is chosen to illustrate the general method, and it is found that the Boussinesq system predicts larger wave run-up than the shallow-water theory in the example treated in this paper. It is also found that the finite fluid domain has a significant impact on the behavior of the wave run-up.

  3. The Boussinesq Debate: Reversibility, Instability, and Free Will.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Michael Mueller, Thomas

    2015-12-01

    In 1877, a young mathematician named Joseph Boussinesq presented a mémoire to the Académie des sciences which demonstrated that some differential equations may have more than one solution. Boussinesq linked this fact to indeterminism and to a possible solution to the free will versus determinism debate. Boussinesq's main interest was to reconcile his philosophical and religious views with science by showing that matter and motion do not suffice to explain all there is in the world. His argument received mixed criticism that addressed both his philosophical views and the scientific content of his work, pointing to the physical "realisticness" of multiple solutions. While Boussinesq proved to be able to face the philosophical criticism, the scientific objections became a serious problem, thus slowly moving the focus of the debate from the philosophical plane to the scientific one. This change of perspective implied a wide discussion on topics such as instability, the sensitivity to initial conditions, and the conservation of energy. The Boussinesq debate is an example of a philosophically motivated debate that transforms into a scientific one, an example of the influence of philosophy on the development of science.

    2008-01-01

    The classical Boussinesq equation is a weakly nonlinear and weakly dispersive equation, which has been widely applied to simulate wave propagation in off-coast shallow waters. A new form of the Boussinesq model for an uneven bottoms is derived in this paper. In the new model, nonlinearity is reduced without increasing the order of the highest derivative in the differential equations. Dispersion relationship of the model is improved to the order of Pade (2,2) by adjusting a parameter in the model based on the long wave approximation. Analysis of the linear dispersion, linear shoaling and nonlinearity of the present model shows that the performances in terms of nonlinearity, dispersion and shoaling of this model are improved. Numerical results obtained with the present model are in agreement with experimental data.

    A set of equations was derived for a non-Boussinesq ocean model in this paper.A new time-splitting scheme was introduced which incorporates the 4th-order Runge-Kutta explicit scheme of low-frequency mode and an implicit scheme of high-frequency mode.With this model,potential temperature,salinity fields and sea surface height were calculated simultaneously such that the numerical error of extrapolation of density field from the current time level to the next one could be reduced while using the equation of mass conservation to determine sea surface height.The non-Boussinesq effect on the density field and sea surface height was estimated by numerical experiments in the final part of this paper.

  10. Rotating non-Boussinesq Rayleigh-Benard convection

    Science.gov (United States)

    Moroz, Vadim Vladimir

    This thesis makes quantitative predictions about the formation and stability of hexagonal and roll patterns in convecting system unbounded in horizontal direction. Starting from the Navier-Stokes, heat and continuity equations, the convection problem is then reduced to normal form equations using equivariant bifurcation theory. The relative stabilities of patterns lying on a hexagonal lattice in Fourier space are then determined using appropriate amplitude equations, with coefficients obtained via asymptotic expansion of the governing partial differential equations, with the conducting state being the base state, and the control parameter and the non-Boussinesq effects being small. The software package Mathematica was used to calculate amplitude coefficients of the appropriate coupled Ginzburg-Landau equations for the rigid-rigid and free-free case. A Galerkin code (initial version of which was written by W. Pesch et al.) is used to determine pattern stability further from onset and for strongly non-Boussinesq fluids. Specific predictions about the stability of hexagon and roll patterns for realistic experimental conditions are made. The dependence of the stability of the convective patterns on the Rayleigh number, planform wavenumber and the rotation rate is studied. Long- and shortwave instabilities, both steady and oscillatory, are identified. For small Prandtl numbers oscillatory sideband instabilities are found already very close to onset. A resonant mode interaction in hexagonal patterns arising in non-Boussinesq Rayleigh-Benard convection is studied using symmetry group methods. The lowest-order coupling terms for interacting patterns are identified. A bifurcation analysis of the resulting system of equations shows that the bifurcation is transcritical. Stability properties of resulting patterns are discussed. It is found that for some fluid properties the traditional hexagon convection solution does not exist. Analytical results are supported by numerical

    In this paper the range of validity and comparison of accuracy of three Boussinesq-type models (Madsen and Sφrensen, 1992; Nwogu, 1993; Wei et al., 1995; referred to as MS, NW and WKGS, respectively) are analyzed and discussed. The governing equations are extended to the second-order approximations to keep higher-order nonlinear terms. Two key parameters ε andμ representing wave nonlinear and frequency dispersive properties are used to demarcate the limit of applicability for these three models. The accuracy of predictions by each model is compared by the relative errors with and without higher-order nonlinear terms in Boussinesq equations. A numerical model is developed based on one-dimensional Boussinesq equations and applied to the case of waves propagating over a submerged bar. The performance and feasibility of each model are tested against laboratory data.

    In this paper, we show the asymptotic limit for the 3D Boussinesq system with zero viscosity limit or zero diffusivity limit. By the classical energy method, we prove that as viscosity(or diffusivity) coefficient goes to zero the solutions of the fully viscous equations converges to those of zero viscosity(or zero diffusivity) equations, which extend the previous results on the asymptotic limit under the conditions of the zero parameter(zero viscosityν=0 or zero diffusivityη=0) in 2D case separately.

    2014-01-01

    The propagation of water waves in the nearshore region can be described by depth-integrated Boussinesq-type equations. The dispersive and nonlinear characteristics of the equations are governed by tuneable parameters. We examine the associated linear eigenproblem both analytically and numerically...... requires Δt∝p−2. We derive and present conditions on the parameters under which implicitly-implicit Boussinesq-type equations will exhibit bounded eigenspectra. Two new bounded versions having comparable nonlinear and dispersive properties as the equations of Nwogu (1993) and Schäffer and Madsen (1995......) are introduced. Using spectral element simulations of stream function waves it is illustrated that (i) the bounded equations capture the physics of the wave motion as well as the standard unbounded equations, and (ii) the bounded equations are computationally more efficient when explicit time-stepping schemes...

  17. Two-layer interfacial flows beyond the Boussinesq approximation: a Hamiltonian approach

    Science.gov (United States)

    Camassa, R.; Falqui, G.; Ortenzi, G.

    2017-02-01

    The theory of integrable systems of Hamiltonian PDEs and their near-integrable deformations is used to study evolution equations resulting from vertical-averages of the Euler system for two-layer stratified flows in an infinite two-dimensional channel. The Hamiltonian structure of the averaged equations is obtained directly from that of the Euler equations through the process of Hamiltonian reduction. Long-wave asymptotics together with the Boussinesq approximation of neglecting the fluids’ inertia is then applied to reduce the leading order vertically averaged equations to the shallow-water Airy system, albeit in a non-trivial way. The full non-Boussinesq system for the dispersionless limit can then be viewed as a deformation of this well known equation. In a perturbative study of this deformation, a family of approximate constants of the motion are explicitly constructed and used to find local solutions of the evolution equations by means of hodograph-like formulae.

    The conventional Boussinesq model is extended to the third order in dispersion and nonlinearity. The new equations are shown to possess better linear dispersion characteristics. For the evolution of periodic waves over a constant depth, the computed wave envelops are spatially aperiodic and skew. The model is then applied to the study of wave focusing by a topographical lens and the results are compared with Whalin's (1971) experimental data as well as some previous results from the conventional Boussinesq model. Encouragingly, improved agreement with Whalin's experimental data is found.

    2014-01-01

    The environmental impact of pollutants and effluents discharged into the atmosphere or the oceans has led researchers to conduct studies related to this issue. Several works have been carried out in this context in order to reduce the effect on the local environment. These types of ejections in nature are modeled as jets in the presence of a density gradient. In this study we treated the problem of inclined round turbulent buoyant jets and plumes ejected in a homogeneous or stratified fluid, at rest or in motion. The prediction of the flow behavior, i.e. the evolution of its variables, is first treated theoretically from a model whose formalism is valid in both the Boussinesq case as well as in the non-Boussinesq general case. Solving the equations governing the plumes is performed numerically using a Runge-Kutta 4th order. To validate the model, laboratory experiments are performed with round jets of air and helium for a wide range of densities. The confrontation theory-experience aims here to fix the limits...

    2010-01-01

    We study here some asymptotic models for the propagation of internal and surface waves in a two-fluid system. We focus on the so-called long wave regime for one dimensional waves, and consider the case of a flat bottom. Starting from the classical Boussinesq/Boussinesq system, we introduce a new family of equivalent symmetric hyperbolic systems. We study the well-posedness of such systems, and the asymptotic convergence of their solutions towards solutions of the full Euler system. Then, we provide a rigorous justification of the so-called KdV approximation, stating that any bounded solution of the full Euler system can be decomposed into four propagating waves, each of them being well approximated by the solutions of uncoupled Korteweg-de Vries equations. Our method also applies for models with the rigid lid assumption, and the precise behavior of the KdV approximations depending on the depth and density ratios is discussed for both rigid lid and free surface configurations. The fact that we obtain {\\it simu...

  6. Nonhydrostatic granular flow over 3-D terrain: New Boussinesq-type gravity waves?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Castro-Orgaz, Oscar; Hutter, Kolumban; Giraldez, Juan V.; Hager, Willi H.

    2015-01-01

    granular mass flow is a basic step in the prediction and control of natural or man-made disasters related to avalanches on the Earth. Savage and Hutter (1989) pioneered the mathematical modeling of these geophysical flows introducing Saint-Venant-type mass and momentum depth-averaged hydrostatic equations using the continuum mechanics approach. However, Denlinger and Iverson (2004) found that vertical accelerations in granular mass flows are of the same order as the gravity acceleration, requiring the consideration of nonhydrostatic modeling of granular mass flows. Although free surface water flow simulations based on nonhydrostatic depth-averaged models are commonly used since the works of Boussinesq (1872, 1877), they have not yet been applied to the modeling of debris flow. Can granular mass flow be described by Boussinesq-type gravity waves? This is a fundamental question to which an answer is required, given the potential to expand the successful Boussinesq-type water theory to granular flow over 3-D terrain. This issue is explored in this work by generalizing the basic Boussinesq-type theory used in civil and coastal engineering for more than a century to an arbitrary granular mass flow using the continuum mechanics approach. Using simple test cases, it is demonstrated that the above question can be answered in the affirmative way, thereby opening a new framework for the physical and mathematical modeling of granular mass flow in geophysics, whereby the effect of vertical motion is mathematically included without the need of ad hoc assumptions.

    2016-01-01

    A coupled BBM system of equations is studied in the situation of water waves propagating over decreasing fluid depth. A conservation equation for mass and a wave breaking criterion valid in the Boussinesq approximation is found. A Fourier collocation method coupled with a 4-stage Runge-Kutta time integration scheme is employed to approximate solutions of the BBM system. The mass conservation equation is used to quantify the role of reflection in the shoaling of solitary waves on a sloping bottom. Shoaling results based on an adiabatic approximation are analyzed. Wave shoaling and the criterion of breaking solitary waves on a sloping bottom is studied. To validate the numerical model the simulation results are compared with those obtained by Grilli et al.[16] and a good agreement between them is observed. Shoaling of solitary waves of two different types of mild slope model systems in [8] and [13] are compared, and it is found that each of these models works well in their respective regimes of applicability.

Long-wave asymptotics together with the Boussinesq approximation of neglecting the fluids' inertia is then applied to reduce the leading order vertically averaged equations to the shallow-water Airy system, and thence, in a non-trivial way, to the dispersionless non-linear Schr\\"odinger equation. The full non-Boussinesq system for the dispersionless limit can then be viewed as a deformation of this well known equation. In a perturbative study of this deformation, it is shown that at first order the deformed system possesses an infinite sequence of constants of the motion, thus casting this system within the framework of comp...

    We characterise the boundary conditions that yield a linearly well posed problem for the so-called KdV-KdV system and for the classical Boussinesq system. Each of them is a system of two evolution PDEs modelling two-way propagation of water waves. We study these problems with the spatial variable in either the half-line or in a finite interval. The results are obtained by extending a spectral transform approach, recently developed for the analysis of scalar evolution PDEs, to the case of systems of PDEs.The knowledge of the boundary conditions that should be imposed in order for the problem to be linearly well posed can be used to obtain an integral representation of the solution. This knowledge is also necessary in order to conduct numerical simulations for the fully nonlinear systems.

    Málaga, C; Peralta-Fabi, R; Arzate, C

    2013-01-01

    A study of convection in a circular two dimensional cell is presented. The system is heated and cooled at two diametrically opposed points on the edge of the circle, which are parallel or anti-parallel to gravity. The latter's role in the plane of the cell can be changed by tilting the cell. When the system is in a horizontal position, a non-trivial analytic solution for the temperature distribution of the quiescent fluid can be found. For a slight inclination, the projection of gravity in the plane of the cell is used as a perturbation parameter in the full hydrodynamic description, as the Boussinesq approximation is inadequate. To first order, the equations are solved for the stationary case and four symmetrical rolls become apparent, showing that a purely conductive state is impossible if gravity -however small- is present; an approximate closed analytical expression is obtained, which describes the four convection rolls. Further analysis is done by a direct numerical integration. Comparison with prelimina...

    Based on the wave breaking model by Li and Wang (1999), this work is to apply Dally' s analytical solution to the wave-height decay irstead of the empirical and semi-empirical hypotheses of wave-height distribution within the wave breaking zone. This enhances the applicability of the model. Computational results of shoaling, location of wave breaking, wave-height decay after wave breaking, set-down and set-up for incident regular waves are shown to have good agreement with experimental and field data.

    2006-01-01

    Many of problems of the natural sciences lead to nonlinear partial differential equations. However, only a few of them have succeeded in being solved explicitly. Therefore different methods of qualitative analysis such as the asymptotic methods play a very important role. This is the first book in the world literature giving a systematic development of a general asymptotic theory for nonlinear partial differential equations with dissipation. Many typical well-known equations are considered as examples, such as: nonlinear heat equation, KdVB equation, nonlinear damped wave equation, Landau-Ginzburg equation, Sobolev type equations, systems of equations of Boussinesq, Navier-Stokes and others.

  18. Energetics of a fluid under the Boussinesq approximation

    CERN Document Server

    Maruyama, Kiyoshi

    2014-01-01

    This paper presents a theory describing the energy budget of a fluid under the Boussinesq approximation: the theory is developed in a manner consistent with the conservation law of mass. It shows that no potential energy is available under the Boussinesq approximation, and also reveals that the work done by the buoyancy force due to changes in temperature corresponds to the conversion between kinetic and internal energy. This energy conversion, however, makes only an ignorable contribution to the distribution of temperature under the approximation. The Boussinesq approximation is, in physical oceanography, extended so that the motion of seawater can be studied. This paper considers this extended approximation as well. Under the extended approximation, the work done by the buoyancy force due to changes in salinity corresponds to the conversion between kinetic and potential energy. It also turns out that the conservation law of mass does not allow the condition $\

  19. Instabilities in Non-Boussinesq Density Stratified Long and Narrow Lakes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Guha, Anirban; Shete, Mihir

    2016-11-01

    We have discovered a new type of instability that can potentially occur in density stratified long and narrow lakes. The non-Boussinesq air-water interface plays a major role in this instability mechanism. A two layered lake driven by wind is considered; in such wind driven scenarios circulation sets up in each layer of the lake. The flow is assumed to be two dimensional, inviscid and incompressible. A surface gravity wave exists on the interface between air and water while an interfacial gravity wave exists on the interface between the two water layers (interface between warm and cold water). The resonant interactions between these two waves under a suitable doppler shift gives rise to normal mode growth rates leading to instability. We verify these claims analytically by piecewise linear velocity and density profiles. Furthermore we also use a realistic velocity and density profiles that are smooth and perform a linear stability analysis using a non-Boussinesq Taylor-Goldstein equation solver. We find that the normal mode instabilities are instigated by realistic wind velocities. Planetary Science and Exploration (PLANEX) Programme Grant No. PLANEX/PHY/2015239.

    The determining equations for the nonclassical symmetry reductions of nonlinear partial differential equations with arbitrary order can be obtained by requiring the compatibility between the original equations and the invariant surface conditions. The (2+1)-dimensional shallow water wave equation, Boussinesq equation, and the dispersive wave equations in shallow water serve as examples i11ustrating how compatibility leads quickly and easily to the determining equations for their nonclassical symmetries.

    Full Text Available The problem of unsteady convective with thermophoresis, chemical reaction and radiative heat transfer in a micropolar fluid flow past a vertical porous surface moving through binary mixture considering temperature dependent dynamic viscosity and constant vortex viscosity has been investigated theoretically. For proper and correct analysis of fluid flow along vertical surface with a temperature lesser than that of the free stream, Boussinesq approximation and temperature dependent viscosity model were modified and incorporated into the governing equations. The governing equations are converted to systems of ordinary differential equations by applying suitable similarity transformations and solved numerically using fourth-order Runge–Kutta method along with shooting technique. The results of the numerical solution are presented graphically and in tabular forms for different values of parameters. Velocity profile increases with temperature dependent variable fluid viscosity parameter. Increase of suction parameter corresponds to an increase in both temperature and concentration within the thin boundary layer.

    Meur, Hervé Le

    2015-01-01

    The aim of this article is to derive surface wave models in the presence of surface tension and viscosity. Using the Navier-Stokes equations with a free surface, flat bottom and surface tension, we derive the viscous 2D Boussinesq system with a weak transverse variation. The assumed transverse variation is on a larger scale than along the main propagation direction. This Boussinesq system is only an intermediate result that enables us to derive the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (KP) equation which is a 2D generalization of the KdV equation. In addition, we get the 1D KdV equation, and lastly the Boussinesq equation. All these equations are derived for non-vanishing initial conditions.

    2008-01-01

    Based on a set of fully nonlinear Boussinesq equations up to the order of O(μ2, ε3μ2) (where ε is the ratio of wave amplitude to water depth and μ is the ratio of water depth to wave length) a numerical wave model is formulated. The model's linear dispersion is acceptably accurate to μ≌1.0, which is confirmed by comparisons between the simulated and measured time series of the regular waves propagating on a submerged bar. The moving shoreline is treated numerically by replacing the solid beach with a permeable beach. Run-up of nonbreaking waves is verified against the analytical solution for nonlinear shallow water waves. The inclusion of wave breaking is fulfilled by introducing an eddy term in the momentum equation to serve as the breaking wave force term to dissipate wave energy in the surf zone. The model is applied to cross-shore motions of regular waves including various types of breaking on plane sloping beaches. Comparisons of the model test results comprising spatial distribution of wave height and mean water level with experimental data are presented.

  11. Coupling 3d Tsunami Generation With Boussinesq Tsunami Propagation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Watts, P.; Grilli, S. T.; Kirby, J. T.

    A general recognition of landslide tsunami hazards has recently led to a proliferation of landslide tsunami models with widely varying assumptions and capabilities. We develop a two part simulation technique that makes few fluid dynamic assumptions so that we can examine the sensitivity of landslide tsunami events to geological param- eters. Tsunami generation of underwater landslide tsunamis is currently being simu- lated with a fully nonlinear, higher order, three-dimensional (3D) Boundary Element Method (BEM) model at the University of Rhode Island. Likewise, wave propagation and runup is currently being simulated with a fully nonlinear Boussinesq model called FUNWAVE at the University of Delaware's Center for Applied Coastal Research. We demonstrate an exact coupling of the 3D BEM model to FUNWAVE by running the generation model until after landslide motion ceases. The free surface shape and water velocities are then transferred to the Boussinesq model FUNWAVE for wave propaga- tion and runup. We run the coupled models for the 1994 Skagway, Alaska event, the 1998 Papua New Guinea event, and the somewhat more speculative 1812 Santa Bar- bara event. We demonstrate that good agreement is obtained with known observations and measurements, thereby validating our geological description of these events. We also show that the tsunami sources predicted by TOPICS are satisfactory to describe these events. We find that fluid dynamic simulations are sensitive to some geological parameters, indicating a need to refine our geological understanding of underwater landslides.

    2016-01-01

    The linear stability of three-dimensional (3D) vortices in rotating, stratified flows has been studied by analyzing the non-hydrostatic inviscid Boussinesq equations. We have focused on a widely-used model of geophysical and astrophysical vortices, which assumes an axisymmetric Gaussian structure for pressure anomalies in the horizontal and vertical directions. For a range of Rossby number ($-0.5 < Ro < 0.5$) and Burger number ($0.02 < Bu < 2.3$) relevant to observed long-lived vortices, the growth rate and spatial structure of the most unstable eigenmodes have been numerically calculated and presented as a function of $Ro-Bu$. We have found neutrally-stable vortices only over a small region of the $Ro-Bu$ parameter space: cyclones with $Ro \\sim 0.02-0.05$ and $Bu \\sim 0.85-0.95$. However, we have also found that anticyclones in general have slower growth rates compared to cyclones. In particular, growth rate of the most unstable eigenmode for anticyclones in a large region of the parameter space ...

    2013-12-08

    This paper, which is largely the fruit of an invited talk on the topic at the latest International Conference on Coastal Engineering, describes the state of the art of modelling by means of Boussinesq-type models (BTMs). Motivations for using BTMs as well as their fundamentals are illustrated, with special attention to the interplay between the physics to be described, the chosen model equations and the numerics in use. The perspective of the analysis is that of a physicist/engineer rather than of an applied mathematician. The chronological progress of the currently available BTMs from the pioneering models of the late 1960s is given. The main applications of BTMs are illustrated, with reference to specific models and methods. The evolution in time of the numerical methods used to solve BTMs (e.g. finite differences, finite elements, finite volumes) is described, with specific focus on finite volumes. Finally, an overview of the most important BTMs currently available is presented, as well as some indications on improvements required and fields of applications that call for attention.

    2016-04-01

    In this paper, the improved tan(Φ(ξ)/2)-expansion method is proposed to find the exact soliton solutions of the coupled Schrödinger-Boussinesq (SB) system. The exact particular solutions are of five types: hyperbolic function solution (exact soliton wave solution), trigonometric function solution (exact periodic wave solution), rational exponential solution (exact singular kink-type wave solution), logarithmic solution and rational solution (exact singular cupson wave solution). We obtained the further solutions comparing with other methods. The results demonstrate that the new tan(Φ(ξ)/2)-expansion method is more efficient than the Ansatz method applied by Bilige et al. (2013). Recently this method was developed for searching the exact travelling-wave solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations. Abundant exact travelling-wave solutions including solitons, kink, periodic and rational solutions have been found. These solutions might play an important role in Laser and plasma. It is shown that this method, with the help of symbolic computation, provides a straightforward and powerful mathematical tool for solving the nonlinear problems.

  19. On a new non-Boussinesq instability in stratified lakes and oceans

    CERN Document Server

    Shete, Mihir H

    2016-01-01

    Lakes and many other geophysical flows are shallow, density stratified, and contain a free-surface. Conventional studies on stratified shear instabilities make Boussinesq approximation. Free-surface arising due to large density variations between air and water cannot be taken into consideration under this approximation. Hence the free-surface is usually replaced by a rigid-lid, and therefore has little effect on the stability of the fluid below it. In this paper we have performed non-Boussinesq linear stability analyses of a double circulation velocity profile prevalent in two-layered density stratified lakes. One of our analyses is performed by considering the presence of wind, while the other one considers quiescent air. Both analyses have shown similar growth rates and stability boundaries. We have compared our non-Boussinesq study with a corresponding Boussinesq one. The maximum non-Boussinesq growth rate is found to be an order of magnitude greater than the maximum Boussinesq growth rate. Furthermore, th...

  2. Boussinesq Modeling of the 1975 Kitimat, British Columbia Landslide Tsunami

    2003-12-01

    Mass failures near the head of Kitimat fjord in British Columbia produced water waves that caused severe destruction of waterfront facilities. We revisit this event with the latest numerical models in order to better understand the geological and tsunamigenic processes involved. Mass failure began around low tide near Moon Bay, possibly on account of construction activities taking place there. Retrogressive failure along the fjord floor proceeded over the next several minutes, until it reached the steep fjord head just underneath the Kitimat River. A mass on the steep slope then failed during a single event that is best characterized as an underwater slide in glacial sediments, resulting in an observed depression of the water within the middle of the fjord. This slide was much larger in volume than the initial mass failure, and consequently much more tsunamigenic. The Kitimat event presents many processes that appear to apply to tsunamis in fjords elsewhere. We examine the larger slide volume and linear dimensions based on the available bathymetry. The slide scar is relatively well discerned and extends along the entire slope, in what can be termed a typical fashion. We reproduce tsunami generation of the larger slide with TOPICS and simulate tsunami propagation and inundation with the Boussinesq model FUNWAVE. Our simulation results reproduce the tsunami runup observations, as well as the regions of damage incurred along the shoreline. We also reproduce far-field wave amplitude observations from fishing boats located further south. The agreement between the modeling results and observations suggests that landslide tsunamis in fjords are becoming well-studied events that can yield consistent processes and that can be accurately modeled.

  10. Mixing and Restratification in the Upper Ocean: Competing Mechanisms in the Wave-Averaged Boussinesq Equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Haney, Sean

    The ocean mixed layer serves as buffer through which the deep ocean and atmosphere communicate. Fluxes of heat, momentum, fresh water, and gases must pass through the mixed layer, and phytoplankton flourish most in the mixed layer where light is abundant. The dynamics of the mixed layer influence these fluxes and productivity of phytoplankton by altering the stratification and mean flow. Restratifying hurricane wakes provide a unique setting in which a dramatically perturbed mixed layer is observable from satellite sea surface temperature. Strong horizontal temperature fronts which border these wakes suggest that two and three dimensional, adiabatic processes play a role. These observations provide the necessary parameters to estimate wake restratification timescales by surface heat fluxes (SF), Ekman buoyancy fluxes (EBF), and mixed layer eddies (MLEs). In the four wakes observed, the timescales for SF and EBF were comparable, while MLEs were much slower. The restratification time for MLEs is reduced for deeper and narrower wakes compared with other mechanisms. Therefore, stronger mixed layer fronts make MLEs competitive with surface heat and wind forcing. Fronts are influenced by winds, waves (Langmuir circulations; LC), MLEs, and symmetric instabilities (SI). The wave averaged (Stokes drift) effects on MLEs are subtle, with aligned (anti-aligned) Stokes and geostrophic flows yielding a slight increase (decrease) in wavenumber and growth rate. Frontal effects on LC are very weak, with the primary result confirming that increased vertical stratification suppresses LC. The effect of Stokes drift on SI is profound. It changes the background flow necessary for SI, and it alters the structure of the SI themselves. Analytic stability criteria show that iii SI exist when the Ertel potential vorticity (PV) is negative. When the Stokes drift is aligned (anti-aligned) with the geostrophic shear, the PV is increased (reduced). This PV criterion is confirmed in more realistic settings with numerical linear stability, and with nonlinear large eddy simulations (LES). Therefore, in the presence of waves, the criterion Ri < 1 is inappropriate for the onset of SI. LES show that fronts with strongly negative PV are far more energetic than fronts that exhibit only LC.

  1. Analytical investigation on 3D non-Boussinesq mountain wave drag for wind profiles with vertical variations

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    TANG Jin-yun; TANG Jie; WANG Yuan

    2007-01-01

    A new analytical model was developed to predict the gravity wave drag (GWD) induced by an isolated 3-dimensional mountain, over which a stratified, nonrotating non-Boussinesq sheared flow is impinged. The model is confined to small amplitude motion and assumes the ambient velocity varying slowly with height. The modified Taylor-Goldstein equation with variable coefficients is solved with a Wentzel-KramersBrillouin (WKB) approximation, formally valid at high Richardson numbers. With this WKB solution, generic formulae of second order accuracy, for the GWD and surface pressure perturbation (both for hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic flow) are presented, enabling a rigorous treatment on the effects by vertical variations in wind profiles. In an ideal test to the circular bell-shaped mountain, it was found that when the wind is linearly sheared,that the GWD decreases as the Richardson number decreases. However, the GWD for a forward sheared wind (wind increases with height) decreases always faster than that for the backward sheared wind (wind deceases with height). This difference is evident whenever the model is hydrostatic or not.

    2009-01-01

    Fractional energy losses of waves due to wave breaking when passing over a submerged bar are studied systematically using a modified numerical code that is based on the high-order Boussinesq-type equations. The model is first tested by the additional experimental data, and the model's capability of simulating the wave transformation over both gentle slope and steep slope is demonstrated. Then, the model's breaking index is replaced and tested. The new breaking index, which is optimized from the several breaking indices, is not sensitive to the spatial grid length and includes the bottom slopes. Numerical tests show that the modified model with the new breaking index is more stable and efficient for the shallow-water wave breaking. Finally, the modified model is used to study the fractional energy losses for the regular waves propagating and breaking over a submerged bar. Our results have revealed that how the nonlinearity and the dispersion of the incident waves as well as the dimensionless bar height (normalized by water depth) dominate the fractional energy losses. It is also found that the bar slope (limited to gentle slopes that less than 1:10) and the dimensionless bar length (normalized by incident wave length) have negligible effects on the fractional energy losses.

    In this paper, we introduce an interactive coastal wave simulation and visualization software, called Celeris. Celeris is an open source software which needs minimum preparation to run on a Windows machine. The software solves the extended Boussinesq equations using a hybrid finite volume - finite difference method and supports moving shoreline boundaries. The simulation and visualization are performed on the GPU using Direct3D libraries, which enables the software to run faster than real-time. Celeris provides a first-of-its-kind interactive modeling platform for coastal wave applications and it supports simultaneous visualization with both photorealistic and colormapped rendering capabilities. We validate our software through comparison with three standard benchmarks for non-breaking and breaking waves.

As a result, abundant types of exact analytical solutions are obtained.

The governing equations are formulated in two depth-averaged velocities within each water layer and of the second-order fully nonlinearity. To improve the model properties, high-er-order terms are introduced to momentum equations and theoretical analyses are made to investi-gate the linear dispersive and nonlinear properties. The optimized model equations show good dis-persion property up to kh≈6 within 0.3%error, and the second nonlinear characteristics are optimized to kh≈6 within 10%error. Based on finite difference method and a composite fourth order Adams-Bashforth-Moulton time integration, one-dimensional equations are solved numerically on non-stag-gered grids. Regular wave evolution over a submerged breakwater is simulated and the computation-al results are compared with the experimental data, the good agreements are found.

    ratio, defined as the ratio of the density of the lighter fluid to the heavier fluid, is greater than approximately one half. For smaller density ratios, undular waves generated at the bore's front dominate over the effects of turbulent mixing, and the expanding layer loses energy across the bore. Based...... on our results, we show that if one can predict the amount of energy radiated by bores through undular waves, it is possible to derive an accurate model for the propagation of non-Boussinesq bores.

    The Okinawa Trench in the East China Sea and the Manila Trench in the South China Sea are considered to be the regions with high risk of potential tsunamis induced by submarine earthquakes. Tsunami waves will impact the southeast coast of China if tsunamis occur in these areas. In this paper, the horizontal two-dimensional Boussinesq model is used to simulate tsunami generation, propagation, and runup in a domain with complex geometrical boundaries. The temporary varying bottom boundary condition is adopted to describe the initial tsunami waves motivated by the submarine faults. The Indian Ocean tsunami is simulated by the numerical model as a validation case. The time series of water elevation and runup on the beach are compared with the measured data from field survey. The agreements indicate that the Boussinesq model can be used to simulate tsunamis and predict the waveform and runup. Then, the hypothetical tsunamis in the Okinawa Trench and the Manila Trench are simulated by the numerical model. The arrival time and maximum wave height near coastal cities are predicted by the model. It turns out that the leading depression N-wave occurs when the tsunami propagates in the continental shelf from the Okinawa Trench. The scenarios of the tsunami in the Manila Trench demonstrate significant effects on the coastal area around the South China Sea.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    F. Løvholt

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available Tsunamis induced by rock slides plunging into fjords constitute a severe threat to local coastal communities. The rock slide impact may give rise to highly non-linear waves in the near field, and because the wave lengths are relatively short, frequency dispersion comes into play. Fjord systems are rugged with steep slopes, and modeling non-linear dispersive waves in this environment with simultaneous run-up is demanding. We have run an operational Boussinesq-type TVD (total variation diminishing model using different run-up formulations. Two different tests are considered, inundation on steep slopes and propagation in a trapezoidal channel. In addition, a set of Lagrangian models serves as reference models. Demanding test cases with solitary waves with amplitudes ranging from 0.1 to 0.5 were applied, and slopes were ranging from 10 to 50°. Different run-up formulations yielded clearly different accuracy and stability, and only some provided similar accuracy as the reference models. The test cases revealed that the model was prone to instabilities for large non-linearity and fine resolution. Some of the instabilities were linked with false breaking during the first positive inundation, which was not observed for the reference models. None of the models were able to handle the bore forming during drawdown, however. The instabilities are linked to short-crested undulations on the grid scale, and appear on fine resolution during inundation. As a consequence, convergence was not always obtained. It is reason to believe that the instability may be a general problem for Boussinesq models in fjords.

    2017-03-01

    In this study, we considered the accurate calculation of far-field tsunami waveforms by using the shallow water equations and accounting for the effects of Boussinesq dispersion, seawater density stratification, elastic loading, and gravitational potential change in a finite difference scheme. By comparing numerical simulations that included and excluded each of these effects with the observed waveforms of the 2011 Tohoku tsunami, we found that all of these effects are significant and resolvable in the far field by the current generation of deep ocean-bottom pressure gauges. Our calculations using previously published, high-resolution models of the 2011 Tohoku tsunami source exhibited excellent agreement with the observed waveforms to a degree that has previously been possible only with near-field or regional observations. We suggest that the ability to model far-field tsunamis with high accuracy has important implications for tsunami source and hazard studies.

    We seek multi-order exact solutions of a generalized shallow water wave equation along with those corresponding to a class of nonlinear systems described by the KdV, modified KdV, Boussinesq, Klein-Gordon and modified Benjamin-Bona-Mahony equation. We employ a modified version of a generalized Lame equation and subject it to a perturbative treatment identifying the solutions order by order in terms of Jacobi elliptic functions. Our solutions are new and hold the key feature that they are expressible in terms of an auxiliary function f in a generic way. For appropriate choices of f we recover the previous results reported in the literature.

    2016-01-01

    We investigate the utility of the convex hull to analyze physical questions related to the dispersion of a group of much more than four Lagrangian tracer particles in a turbulent flow. Validation of standard dispersion behaviors is a necessary preliminary step for use of the convex hull to describe turbulent flows. In simulations of statistically homogeneous and stationary Navier-Stokes turbulence, neutral fluid Boussinesq convection, and MHD Boussinesq convection we show that the convex hull can be used to reasonably capture the dispersive behavior of a large group of tracer particles. We validate dispersion results produced with convex hull analysis against scalings for Lagrangian particle pair dispersion. In addition to this basic validation study, we show that convex hull analysis provides information that particle pair dispersion does not, in the form of a extreme value statistics, surface area, and volume for a cluster of particles. We use the convex hull surface area and volume to examine the degree of...

  20. Multiple (′/)-expansion method and its applications to nonlinear evolution equations in mathematical physics

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    Junchao Chen; Biao Li

    2012-03-01

    In this paper, an extended multiple (′/)-expansion method is proposed to seek exact solutions of nonlinear evolution equations. The validity and advantages of the proposed method is illustrated by its applications to the Sharma–Tasso–Olver equation, the sixth-order Ramani equation, the generalized shallow water wave equation, the Caudrey–Dodd–Gibbon–Sawada–Kotera equation, the sixth-order Boussinesq equation and the Hirota–Satsuma equations. As a result, various complexiton solutions consisting of hyperbolic functions, trigonometric functions, rational functions and their mixture with parameters are obtained. When some parameters are taken as special values, the known double solitary-like wave solutions are derived from the double hyperbolic function solution. In addition, this method can also be used to deal with some high-dimensional and variable coefficients’ nonlinear evolution equations.

    Chung, B K; Nam, S; Nam, Soonkeon

    1993-01-01

    We give a unified view of the relation between the $SL(2)$ KdV, the mKdV, and the Ur-KdV equations through the Fr\\'{e}chet derivatives and their inverses. For this we introduce a new procedure of obtaining the Ur-KdV equation, where we require that it has no non-local operators. We extend this method to the $SL(3)$ KdV equation, i.e., Boussinesq(Bsq) equation and obtain the hamiltonian structure of Ur-Bsq equationin a simple form. In particular, we explicitly construct the hamiltonian operator of the Ur-Bsq system which defines the poisson structure of the system, through the Fr\\'{e}chet derivative and its inverse.

    2014-01-01

    In this paper we present numerical simulations of rapidly-rotating Rayleigh-B\\'enard convection in the Boussinesq approximation with stress-free boundary conditions. At moderately low Rossby number and large Rayleigh number, we show that a large-scale depth-invariant flow is formed, reminiscent of the condensate state observed in two-dimensional flows. We show that the large-scale circulation shares many similarities with the so-called vortex, or slow-mode, of forced rotating turbulence. Our investigations show that at a fixed rotation rate the large-scale vortex is only observed for a finite range of Rayleigh numbers, as the quasi-two-dimensional nature of the flow disappears at very high Rayleigh numbers. We observe slow vortex merging events and find a non-local inverse cascade of energy in addition to the regular direct cascade associated with fast small-scale turbulent motions. Finally, we show that cyclonic structures are dominant in the small-scale turbulent flow and this symmetry breaking persists in ...

    In this article,the use of a high-order Boussinesq-type model and sets of laboratory experiments in a large scale flume of breaking solitary waves climbing up slopes with two inclinations are presented to study the shoreline behavior of breaking and non-breaking solitary waves on plane slopes.The scale effect on run-up height is briefly discussed.The model simulation capability is well validated against the available laboratory data and present experiments.Then,serial numerical tests are conducted to study the shoreline motion correlated with the effects of beach slope and wave nonlinearity for breaking and non-breaking waves.The empirical formula proposed by Hsiao et al.for predicting the maximum run-up height of a breaking solitary wave on plane slopes with a wide range of slope inclinations is confirmed to be cautious.Furthermore,solitary waves impacting and overtopping an impermeable sloping seawall at various water depths are investigated.Laboratory data of run-up height,shoreline motion,free surface elevation and overtopping discharge are presented.Comparisons of run-up,run-down,shoreline trajectory and wave overtopping discharge are made.A fairly good agreement is seen between numerical results and experimental data.It elucidates that the present depth-integrated model can be used as an efficient tool for predicting a wide spectrum of coastal problems.

  14. On a shallow water wave equation

    Clarkson, P A; Peter A Clarkson; Elizabeth L Mansfield

    1994-01-01

    In this paper we study a shallow water equation derivable using the Boussinesq approximation, which includes as two special cases, one equation discussed by Ablowitz et. al. [Stud. Appl. Math., 53 (1974) 249--315] and one by Hirota and Satsuma [J. Phys. Soc. Japan}, 40 (1976) 611--612]. A catalogue of classical and nonclassical symmetry reductions, and a Painleve analysis, are given. Of particular interest are families of solutions found containing a rich variety of qualitative behaviours. Indeed we exhibit and plot a wide variety of solutions all of which look like a two-soliton for t>0 but differ radically for t<0. These families arise as nonclassical symmetry reduction solutions and solutions found using the singular manifold method. This example shows that nonclassical symmetries and the singular manifold method do not, in general, yield the same solution set. We also obtain symmetry reductions of the shallow water equation solvable in terms of solutions of the first, third and fifth Painleve equations...

  15. Application of the fractional conservation of mass to Gas Flow diffusivity equation in heterogeneous porous media

    CERN Document Server

    Caserta, A; Salusti, E

    2016-01-01

    In this paper we reconsider the classical nonlinear diffusivity equation of real gas in an heterogenous porous medium in light of the recent studies about the generalized fractional equation of conservation of mass. We first recall the physical meaning of the fractional conservation of mass recently studied by Wheatcraft and Meerschaert (2008) and then consider the implications in the classical model of diffusion of a real gas in a porous medium. Then we show that the obtained equation can be simply linearized into a classical space-fractional diffusion equation, widely studied in the literature. We also consider the case of a power-law pressure-dependence of the permeability coefficient. In this case we provide some useful exact analytical results. In particular, we are able to find a Barenblatt-type solution for a space-fractional Boussinesq equation, arising in this context.

  16. Rayleigh-Benard stability and the validity of quasi-Boussinesq or quasi-anelastic liquid approximations

    CERN Document Server

    Alboussiere, Thierry

    2016-01-01

    The linear stability threshold of the Rayleigh-Benard configuration is analyzed with compressible effects taken into account. It is assumed that the fluid obeys a Newtonian rheology and Fourier's law of thermal transport with constant, uniform (dynamic) viscosity and thermal conductivity in a uniform gravity field. Top and bottom boundaries are maintained at different constant temperatures and we consider here boundary conditions of zero tangential stress and impermeable walls. Under these conditions, and with the Boussinesq approximation, Rayleigh (1916) first obtained analytically the critical value 27pi^4/4 for a dimensionless parameter, now known as the Rayleigh number, at the onset of convection. This manuscript describes the changes of the critical Rayleigh number due to the compressibility of the fluid, measured by the dimensionless dissipation parameter D and due to a finite temperature difference between the hot and cold boundaries, measured by a dimensionless temperature gradient a. Different equati...

  18. The Stampacchia maximum principle for stochastic partial differential equations and applications

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chekroun, Mickaël D.; Park, Eunhee; Temam, Roger

    2016-02-01

    Stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) are considered, linear and nonlinear, for which we establish comparison theorems for the solutions, or positivity results a.e., and a.s., for suitable data. Comparison theorems for SPDEs are available in the literature. The originality of our approach is that it is based on the use of truncations, following the Stampacchia approach to maximum principle. We believe that our method, which does not rely too much on probability considerations, is simpler than the existing approaches and to a certain extent, more directly applicable to concrete situations. Among the applications, boundedness results and positivity results are respectively proved for the solutions of a stochastic Boussinesq temperature equation, and of reaction-diffusion equations perturbed by a non-Lipschitz nonlinear noise. Stabilization results to a Chafee-Infante equation perturbed by a nonlinear noise are also derived.

  19. Convective Wave Breaking in the KdV Equation

    CERN Document Server

    Brun, Mats K

    2016-01-01

    The KdV equation is a model equation for waves at the surface of an inviscid incompressible fluid, and it is well known that the equation describes the evolution of unidirectional waves of small amplitude and long wavelength fairly accurately if the waves fall into the Boussinesq regime. The KdV equation allows a balance of nonlinear steepening effects and dispersive spreading which leads to the formation of steady wave profiles in the form of solitary waves and cnoidal waves. While these wave profiles are solutions of the KdV equation for any amplitude, it is shown here that there for both the solitary and the cnoidal waves, there are critical amplitudes for which the horizontal component of the particle velocity matches the phase velocity of the wave. Solitary or cnoidal solutions of the KdV equation which surpass these amplitudes feature incipient wave breaking as the particle velocity exceeds the phase velocity near the crest of the wave, and the model breaks down due to violation of the kinematic surface...

In addition, the integral equation approach leads naturally to the solution of the problem--under suitable conditions--in the form of an infinite series.Geared toward upper-level undergraduate students, this text focuses chiefly upon linear integral equations.

  3. Self-Consistent Sources for Integrable Equations Via Deformations of Binary Darboux Transformations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chvartatskyi, Oleksandr; Dimakis, Aristophanes; Müller-Hoissen, Folkert

    2016-08-01

    We reveal the origin and structure of self-consistent source extensions of integrable equations from the perspective of binary Darboux transformations. They arise via a deformation of the potential that is central in this method. As examples, we obtain in particular matrix versions of self-consistent source extensions of the KdV, Boussinesq, sine-Gordon, nonlinear Schrödinger, KP, Davey-Stewartson, two-dimensional Toda lattice and discrete KP equation. We also recover a (2+1)-dimensional version of the Yajima-Oikawa system from a deformation of the pKP hierarchy. By construction, these systems are accompanied by a hetero binary Darboux transformation, which generates solutions of such a system from a solution of the source-free system and additionally solutions of an associated linear system and its adjoint. The essence of all this is encoded in universal equations in the framework of bidifferential calculus.

  4. A new type numerical model foraction balance equation in simulating nearshore waves

    2001-01-01

    Several current used wave numerical models are briefly described, the computing techniques of the source terms, numerical wave generation and boundary conditions in the action balance equation model are discussed. Not only the quadruplet wave-wave interactions, but also the triad wave-wave interactions are included in the model, so that nearshore waves could be simulated reasonably. The model is compared with the Boussinesq equation and the mild slope equation. The model is applied to calculating the distribu-tions of wave height and wave period field in the Haian Bay area and to simulating the influences of the unsteady current and water level variation on the wave field. Finally, the de-veloping tendency of the model is discussed.

  5. Asymptotic reductions and solitons of nonlocal nonlinear Schr\\"{o}dinger equations

    2016-01-01

    Asymptotic reductions of a defocusing nonlocal nonlinear Schr\\"{o}dinger model in $(3+1)$-dimensions, in both Cartesian and cylindrical geometry, are presented. First, at an intermediate stage, a Boussinesq equation is derived, and then its far-field, in the form of a variety of Kadomtsev-Petviashvilli (KP) equations for right- and left-going waves, is found. KP models include versions of the KP-I and KP-II equations, in Cartesian and cylindrical geometry. Solitary waves solutions, planar or ring-shaped, and of dark or anti-dark type, are also predicted to occur. Their nature and stability is determined by a parameter defined by the physical parameters of the original nonlocal system. It is thus found that (dark) anti-dark solitary waves are only supported by a weak (strong) nonlocality, and are unstable (stable) in higher-dimensions. Our analytical predictions are corroborated by direct numerical simulations.

  6. Equation poems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Prentis, Jeffrey J.

    1996-05-01

    One of the most challenging goals of a physics teacher is to help students see that the equations of physics are connected to each other, and that they logically unfold from a small number of basic ideas. Derivations contain the vital information on this connective structure. In a traditional physics course, there are many problem-solving exercises, but few, if any, derivation exercises. Creating an equation poem is an exercise to help students see the unity of the equations of physics, rather than their diversity. An equation poem is a highly refined and eloquent set of symbolic statements that captures the essence of the derivation of an equation. Such a poetic derivation is uncluttered by the extraneous details that tend to distract a student from understanding the essential physics of the long, formal derivation.

  9. Non-Boussinesq Dissolution-Driven Convection in Two- and Three-Dimensional Porous Media at Partially-Saturated Condition

    Science.gov (United States)

    Amooie, Mohammad Amin; Soltanian, Mohammad Reza; Moortgat, Joachim

    2016-11-01

    Sequestrated carbon dioxide (CO2) into saline aquifers, increases brine density through dissolution, and leads to gravitational instability and convective mixing. Traditionally, only the underlying brine-saturated subdomain is studied to avoid two-phase systems while replacing the gas cap atop with a constant, fully-saturated boundary condition. This violates the interface movement, neglects the capillary transition zone across original phases, and imposes constant density at top boundary insensitive to convective downwelling flow. Moreover, dissolution causes volume swelling, reflected as pressure build-up in absence of interface (movement), which further increases the fluid density -not captured under Boussinesq approximation. Here we accurately model the nonlinear phase behavior of brine-CO2 mixture, altered by dissolution and compressibility. We inject CO2 at a sufficiently low injection rate to maintain the single, partially-saturated phase, with no constraint on pressure and composition, so that density at top is free to change against the rate at which dissolved CO2 migrates downwards. We discover new flow regimes and present quantitative scaling relations for their temporal evolution in both two- and three-dimensional porous media.

  10. A TVD-WAF-based hybrid finite volume and finite difference scheme for nonlinearly dispersive wave equations

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jing Yin

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available A total variation diminishing-weighted average flux (TVD-WAF-based hybrid numerical scheme for the enhanced version of nonlinearly dispersive Boussinesq-type equations was developed. The one-dimensional governing equations were rewritten in the conservative form and then discretized on a uniform grid. The finite volume method was used to discretize the flux term while the remaining terms were approximated with the finite difference method. The second-order TVD-WAF method was employed in conjunction with the Harten-Lax-van Leer (HLL Riemann solver to calculate the numerical flux, and the variables at the cell interface for the local Riemann problem were reconstructed via the fourth-order monotone upstream-centered scheme for conservation laws (MUSCL. The time marching scheme based on the third-order TVD Runge-Kutta method was used to obtain numerical solutions. The model was validated through a series of numerical tests, in which wave breaking and a moving shoreline were treated. The good agreement between the computed results, documented analytical solutions, and experimental data demonstrates the correct discretization of the governing equations and high accuracy of the proposed scheme, and also conforms the advantages of the proposed shock-capturing scheme for the enhanced version of the Boussinesq model, including the convenience in the treatment of wave breaking and moving shorelines and without the need for a numerical filter.

    Atmospheric flow fields resulting from a semi-elliptical surface obstruction in an otherwise horizontally homogeneous statistically stationary flow are modelled with the boundary-layer/Boussinesq-approximation of the governing equation of fluid mechanics. The turbulence kinetic energy equation is used to determine the dissipative effects of turbulent shear on the mean flow. Mean-flow results are compared with those given in a previous paper where the same problem was attacked using a Prandtl mixing-length hypothesis. Iso-lines of turbulence kinetic energy and turbulence intensity are plotted in the plane of the flow. They highlight regions of high turbulence intensity in the stagnation zone and sharp gradients in intensity along the transition from adverse to favourable pressure gradient.

  12. Solution of Fractional Partial Differential Equations in Fluid Mechanics by Extension of Some Iterative Method

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    A. A. Hemeda

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available An extension of the so-called new iterative method (NIM has been used to handle linear and nonlinear fractional partial differential equations. The main property of the method lies in its flexibility and ability to solve nonlinear equations accurately and conveniently. Therefore, a general framework of the NIM is presented for analytical treatment of fractional partial differential equations in fluid mechanics. The fractional derivatives are described in the Caputo sense. Numerical illustrations that include the fractional wave equation, fractional Burgers equation, fractional KdV equation, fractional Klein-Gordon equation, and fractional Boussinesq-like equation are investigated to show the pertinent features of the technique. Comparison of the results obtained by the NIM with those obtained by both Adomian decomposition method (ADM and the variational iteration method (VIM reveals that the NIM is very effective and convenient. The basic idea described in this paper is expected to be further employed to solve other similar linear and nonlinear problems in fractional calculus.

    1975-01-01

    Flow over surface obstructions can produce significantly large wind shears such that adverse flying conditions can occur for aeronautical systems (helicopters, STOL vehicles, etc.). Atmospheric flow fields resulting from a semi-elliptical surface obstruction in an otherwise horizontally homogeneous statistically stationary flow are modelled with the boundary-layer/Boussinesq-approximation of the governing equation of fluid mechanics. The turbulence kinetic energy equation is used to determine the dissipative effects of turbulent shear on the mean flow. Iso-lines of turbulence kinetic energy and turbulence intensity are plotted in the plane of the flow and highlight regions of high turbulence intensity in the stagnation zone and sharp gradients in intensity along the transition from adverse to favourable pressure gradient. Discussion of the effects of the disturbed wind field in CTOL and STOL aircraft flight path and obstruction clearance standards is given. The results indicate that closer inspection of these presently recommended standards as influenced by wind over irregular terrains is required.

  18. Numerical and experimental study of Boussinesq wall horizontal turbulent jet of fresh water in a static homogeneous environment of salt water

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2015-01-01

    This paper investigates a numerical and experimental study about buoyant wall turbulent jet in a static homogeneous environment. A light fluid of fresh water is injected horizontally and tangentially to a plane wall into homogenous salt water ambient. This later is given with different values of salinity and the initial fractional density is small, so the applicability of the Boussinesq approximation is valid. Since the domain temperature is assumed to be constant, the density of the mixture is a function of the salt concentration only. Mathematical model is based on the finite volume method and reports on an application of standardk-ε turbulence model for steady flow with densimetric Froude numbers of 1-75 and Reynolds numbers of 2 000-6 000. The basic features of the model are the conservation of mass, momentum and concentration. The boundaries of jet body, the radius and cling length are determined. It is found that the jet spreading and behavior depend on the ratio between initial buoyancy flux and momentum, i.e., initial Froude number, and on the influence of wall boundary which corresponds to Coanda effect. Laboratory experiments were conducted with photographic observations of jet trajectories and numerical results are described and compared with the experiments. A good agreement with numerical and experimental results has been achieved.

    The elliptic equation is taken as a transformation and applied to solve nonlinear wave equations. It is shown that this method is more powerful to give more kinds of solutions, such as rational solutions, solitary wave solutions,periodic wave solutions and so on, so it can be taken as a generalized method.

    After finding the really self-consistent electromagnetic equations for a plasma, we proceed in a similar fashion to find how the magnetohydrodynamical equations have to be modified accordingly. Substantially this is done by replacing the "Lorentz" force equation by the correct (in our case) force equation. Formally we have to use the vector potential instead of the magnetic field intensity. The appearance of the formulae presented is the one of classical vector analysis. We thus find a set of eight equations in eight unknowns, as previously known concerning the traditional MHD equations.

  1. Non-Boussinesq turbulent buoyant jet of a low-density gas leaks into high-density ambient

    KAUST Repository

    El-Amin, Mohamed

    2010-12-01

    In this article, we study the problem of low-density gas jet injected into high-density ambient numerically which is important in applications such as fuel injection and leaks. It is assumed that the local rate of entrainment is consisted of two components; one is the component of entrainment due to jet momentum while the other is the component of entrainment due to buoyancy. The integral models of the mass, momentum and concentration fluxes are obtained and transformed to a set of ordinary differential equations using some similarity transformations. The resulting system is solved to determine the centerline quantities which are used to get the mean axial velocity, mean concentration and mean density of the jet. Therefore, the centerline and mean quantities are used together with the governing equation to determine some important turbulent quantities such as, cross-stream velocity, Reynolds stress, velocity- concentration correlation, turbulent eddy viscosity and turbulent eddy diffusivity. Throughout this paper the developed model is verified by comparing the present results with experimental results and jet/plume theory from the literature. © 2010 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    The authors introduce, in this research monograph on stochastic differential equations, a class of points termed isolated singular points. Stochastic differential equations possessing such points (called singular stochastic differential equations here) arise often in theory and in applications. However, known conditions for the existence and uniqueness of a solution typically fail for such equations. The book concentrates on the study of the existence, the uniqueness, and, what is most important, on the qualitative behaviour of solutions of singular stochastic differential equations. This is done by providing a qualitative classification of isolated singular points, into 48 possible types.

    Full Text Available We construct nonlinear extensions of Dirac's relativistic electron equation that preserve its other desirable properties such as locality, separability, conservation of probability and Poincaré invariance. We determine the constraints that the nonlinear term must obey and classify the resultant non-polynomial nonlinearities in a double expansion in the degree of nonlinearity and number of derivatives. We give explicit examples of such nonlinear equations, studying their discrete symmetries and other properties. Motivated by some previously suggested applications we then consider nonlinear terms that simultaneously violate Lorentz covariance and again study various explicit examples. We contrast our equations and construction procedure with others in the literature and also show that our equations are not gauge equivalent to the linear Dirac equation. Finally we outline various physical applications for these equations.

    2010-01-01

    We introduce mesoscopic and macroscopic model equations of chemotaxis with anomalous subdiffusion for modelling chemically directed transport of biological organisms in changing chemical environments with diffusion hindered by traps or macro-molecular crowding. The mesoscopic models are formulated using Continuous Time Random Walk master equations and the macroscopic models are formulated with fractional order differential equations. Different models are proposed depending on the timing of the chemotactic forcing. Generalizations of the models to include linear reaction dynamics are also derived. Finally a Monte Carlo method for simulating anomalous subdiffusion with chemotaxis is introduced and simulation results are compared with numerical solutions of the model equations. The model equations developed here could be used to replace Keller-Segel type equations in biological systems with transport hindered by traps, macro-molecular crowding or other obstacles.

This is shown to be similar to the conventional drift-diffusion equation except that it is a more rigorous solution to the Boltzmann equation because the current and carrier densities are resolved into M×1 vectors, where M is the number of modes in the discrete momentum space. The mobility and diffusion coefficient become M×M matrices which connect the M momentum space modes. This approach is demonstrated by simulating electron transport in bulk silicon.

  2. The Effective Equation Method

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kuksin, Sergei; Maiocchi, Alberto

    In this chapter we present a general method of constructing the effective equation which describes the behavior of small-amplitude solutions for a nonlinear PDE in finite volume, provided that the linear part of the equation is a hamiltonian system with a pure imaginary discrete spectrum. The effective equation is obtained by retaining only the resonant terms of the nonlinearity (which may be hamiltonian, or may be not); the assertion that it describes the limiting behavior of small-amplitude solutions is a rigorous mathematical theorem. In particular, the method applies to the three- and four-wave systems. We demonstrate that different possible types of energy transport are covered by this method, depending on whether the set of resonances splits into finite clusters (this happens, e.g. in case of the Charney-Hasegawa-Mima equation), or is connected (this happens, e.g. in the case of the NLS equation if the space-dimension is at least two). For equations of the first type the energy transition to high frequencies does not hold, while for equations of the second type it may take place. Our method applies to various weakly nonlinear wave systems, appearing in plasma, meteorology and oceanography.

  12. Regularized Structural Equation Modeling.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jacobucci, Ross; Grimm, Kevin J; McArdle, John J

    A new method is proposed that extends the use of regularization in both lasso and ridge regression to structural equation models. The method is termed regularized structural equation modeling (RegSEM). RegSEM penalizes specific parameters in structural equation models, with the goal of creating easier to understand and simpler models. Although regularization has gained wide adoption in regression, very little has transferred to models with latent variables. By adding penalties to specific parameters in a structural equation model, researchers have a high level of flexibility in reducing model complexity, overcoming poor fitting models, and the creation of models that are more likely to generalize to new samples. The proposed method was evaluated through a simulation study, two illustrative examples involving a measurement model, and one empirical example involving the structural part of the model to demonstrate RegSEM's utility.

    The equations of celestial mechanics that govern the variation of the orbital elements are completely derived for stochastic perturbation which generalized the classic perturbation equations which are used since Gauss, starting from Newton's equation and it's solution. The six most understandable orbital element, the semi-major axis, the eccentricity, the inclination, the longitude of the ascending node, the pericenter angle and the mean motion are express in term of the angular momentum vector $\\textbf{H}$ per unit of mass and the energy $E$ per unit of mass. We differentiate those expressions using It\\^o's theory of differential equations due to the stochastic nature of the perturbing force. The result is applied to the two-body problem perturbed by a stochastic dust cloud and also perturbed by a stochastic dynamical oblateness of the central body.

    There exist two central measures of turbulent mixing in turbulent stratified fluids, both caused by molecular diffusion: 1) the dissipation rate D(APE) of available potential energy (APE); 2) the turbulent rate of change Wr,turbulent of background potential energy GPEr. So far, these two quantities have often been regarded as the same energy conversion, namely the irreversible conversion of APE into GPEr, owing to D(APE)=Wr,turbulent holding exactly for a Boussinesq fluid with a linear equation of state. It was recently pointed out, however, that this equality no longer holds for a thermally-stratified compressible fluid, the ratio \\xi=Wr,turbulent/D(APE) being then lower than unity and sometimes even negative for water/seawater. In this paper, the behavior of the ratio \\xi is examined for different stratifications having the same buoyancy frequency N(z), but different vertical profiles of the parameter \\Upsilon = \\alpha P/(\\rho C_p), where \\alpha is the thermal expansion, P the hydrostatic pressure, \\rho the...

    Full Text Available This paper presents the dynamic, original, machine motion equations. The equation of motion of the machine that generates angular speed of the shaft (which varies with position and rotation speed is deduced by conservation kinetic energy of the machine. An additional variation of angular speed is added by multiplying by the coefficient dynamic D (generated by the forces out of mechanism and or by the forces generated by the elasticity of the system. Kinetic energy conservation shows angular speed variation (from the shaft with inertial masses, while the dynamic coefficient introduces the variation of w with forces acting in the mechanism. Deriving the first equation of motion of the machine one can obtain the second equation of motion dynamic. From the second equation of motion of the machine it determines the angular acceleration of the shaft. It shows the distribution of the forces on the mechanism to the internal combustion heat engines. Dynamic, the velocities can be distributed in the same way as forces. Practically, in the dynamic regimes, the velocities have the same timing as the forces. Calculations should be made for an engine with a single cylinder. Originally exemplification is done for a classic distribution mechanism, and then even the module B distribution mechanism of an Otto engine type.

  3. Asymptotics, structure, and integration of sound-proof atmospheric flow equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Klein, Rupert

    2009-07-01

    Relative to the full compressible flow equations, sound-proof models filter acoustic waves while maintaining advection and internal waves. Two well-known sound-proof models, an anelastic model by Bannon and Durran’s pseudo-incompressible model, are shown here to be structurally very close to the full compressible flow equations. Essentially, the anelastic model is obtained by suppressing ∂ t ρ in the mass continuity equation and slightly modifying the gravity term, whereas the pseudo-incompressible model results from dropping ∂ t p from the pressure equation. For length scales small compared to the density and pressure scale heights, the anelastic model reduces to the Boussinesq approximation, while the pseudo-incompressible model approaches the zero Mach number, variable density flow equations. Thus, for small scales, both models are asymptotically consistent with the full compressible flow equations, yet the pseudo-incompressible model is more general in that it remains valid in the presence of large density variations. For the relatively small density variations found in typical atmosphere-ocean flows, both models are found to yield very similar results, with deviations between models much smaller than deviations obtained when using different numerical schemes for the same model. This in agreement with Smolarkiewicz and Dörnbrack (Int J Numer Meth Fluids 56:1513-1519, 2007). Despite these useful properties, neither model can be derived by a low-Mach number asymptotic expansion for length scales comparable to the pressure scale height, i.e., for the regime they were originally designed for. Derivations of these models via scale analysis ignore an asymptotic time scale separation between advection and internal waves. In fact, only the classical Ogura and Phillips model, which assumes weak stratification of the order of the Mach number squared, can be obtained as a leading-order model from systematic low Mach number asymptotic analysis.

  4. Generalization of Hopf Functional Equation

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2002-01-01

    This paper generalizes the Hopf functional equation in order to apply it to a wider class of not necessarily incompressible fluid flows. We start by defining characteristic functionals of the velocity field, the density field and the temperature field of a compressible field. Using the continuity equation, the Navier-Stokes equations and the equation of energy we derive a functional equation governing the motion of an ideal gas flow and a van der Waals gas flow, and then give some general methods of deriving a functional equation governing the motion of any compressible fluid flow. These functional equations can be considered as the generalization of the Hopf functional equation.

    Plyukhin, A V

    2013-11-01

    We address the problem of a microscopic derivation of the Langevin equation for a weakly relativistic Brownian particle. A noncovariant Hamiltonian model is adopted, in which the free motion of particles is described relativistically while their interaction is treated classically, i.e., by means of action-to-a-distance interaction potentials. Relativistic corrections to the classical Langevin equation emerge as nonlinear dissipation terms and originate from the nonlinear dependence of the relativistic velocity on momentum. On the other hand, similar nonlinear dissipation forces also appear as classical (nonrelativistic) corrections to the weak-coupling approximation. It is shown that these classical corrections, which are usually ignored in phenomenological models, may be of the same order of magnitude, if not larger than, relativistic ones. The interplay of relativistic corrections and classical beyond-the-weak-coupling contributions determines the sign of the leading nonlinear dissipation term in the Langevin equation and thus is qualitatively important.

    2016-01-01

    Focusing on stochastic porous media equations, this book places an emphasis on existence theorems, asymptotic behavior and ergodic properties of the associated transition semigroup. Stochastic perturbations of the porous media equation have reviously been considered by physicists, but rigorous mathematical existence results have only recently been found. The porous media equation models a number of different physical phenomena, including the flow of an ideal gas and the diffusion of a compressible fluid through porous media, and also thermal propagation in plasma and plasma radiation. Another important application is to a model of the standard self-organized criticality process, called the "sand-pile model" or the "Bak-Tang-Wiesenfeld model". The book will be of interest to PhD students and researchers in mathematics, physics and biology.

    This report illustrates a comparative study to analyze the physical differences between numerical simulations obtained with both the conservation and incompressible forms of the Navier-Stokes equations for natural convection flows in simple geometries. The purpose of this study is to quantify how the incompressible flow assumption (which is based upon constant density advection, divergence-free flow, and the Boussinesq gravitational body force approximation) differs from the conservation form (which only assumes that the fluid is a continuum) when solving flows driven by gravity acting upon density variations resulting from local temperature gradients. Driving this study is the common use of the incompressible flow assumption in fluid flow simulations for nuclear power applications in natural convection flows subjected to a high heat flux (large temperature differences). A series of simulations were conducted on two-dimensional, differentially-heated rectangular geometries and modeled with both hydrodynamic formulations. From these simulations, the selected characterization parameters of maximum Nusselt number, average Nusselt number, and normalized pressure reduction were calculated. Comparisons of these parameters were made with available benchmark solutions for air with the ideal gas assumption at both low and high heat fluxes. Additionally, we generated body force, velocity, and divergence of velocity distributions to provide a basis for further analysis. The simulations and analysis were then extended to include helium at the Very High Temperature gas-cooled Reactor (VHTR) normal operating conditions. Our results show that the consequences of incorporating the incompressible flow assumption in high heat flux situations may lead to unrepresentative results. The results question the use of the incompressible flow assumption for simulating fluid flow in an operating nuclear reactor, where large temperature variations are present. The results show that the use of

    Shock waves, vorticity waves, and entropy waves are fundamental discontinuity waves in nature and arise in supersonic or transonic gas flow, or from a very sudden release (explosion) of chemical, nuclear, electrical, radiation, or mechanical energy in a limited space. Tracking these discontinuities and their interactions, especially when and where new waves arise and interact in the motion of gases, is one of the main motivations for numerical computation for the gas dynamics equations. In this paper, we discuss some historic and recent developments, as well as mathematical challenges, in designing and formulating efficient numerical methods and algorithms to compute weak entropy solutions for the Euler equations for gas dynamics.

  17. The Statistical Drake Equation

    Maccone, Claudio

    2010-12-01

    We provide the statistical generalization of the Drake equation. From a simple product of seven positive numbers, the Drake equation is now turned into the product of seven positive random variables. We call this "the Statistical Drake Equation". The mathematical consequences of this transformation are then derived. The proof of our results is based on the Central Limit Theorem (CLT) of Statistics. In loose terms, the CLT states that the sum of any number of independent random variables, each of which may be ARBITRARILY distributed, approaches a Gaussian (i.e. normal) random variable. This is called the Lyapunov Form of the CLT, or the Lindeberg Form of the CLT, depending on the mathematical constraints assumed on the third moments of the various probability distributions. In conclusion, we show that: The new random variable N, yielding the number of communicating civilizations in the Galaxy, follows the LOGNORMAL distribution. Then, as a consequence, the mean value of this lognormal distribution is the ordinary N in the Drake equation. The standard deviation, mode, and all the moments of this lognormal N are also found. The seven factors in the ordinary Drake equation now become seven positive random variables. The probability distribution of each random variable may be ARBITRARY. The CLT in the so-called Lyapunov or Lindeberg forms (that both do not assume the factors to be identically distributed) allows for that. In other words, the CLT "translates" into our statistical Drake equation by allowing an arbitrary probability distribution for each factor. This is both physically realistic and practically very useful, of course. An application of our statistical Drake equation then follows. The (average) DISTANCE between any two neighboring and communicating civilizations in the Galaxy may be shown to be inversely proportional to the cubic root of N. Then, in our approach, this distance becomes a new random variable. We derive the relevant probability density

    LIU Yan-hong; ZHANG Hui-ming

    2007-01-01

    Combining the symplectic variations theory, the homogeneous control equation and isoparametric element homogeneous formulations for piezothermoelastic hybrid laminates problems were deduced. Firstly, based on the generalized Hamilton variation principle, the non-homogeneous Hamilton canonical equation for piezothermoelastic bodies was derived. Then the symplectic relationship of variations in the thermal equilibrium formulations and gradient equations was considered, and the non-homogeneous canonical equation was transformed to homogeneous control equation for solving independently the coupling problem of piezothermoelastic bodies by the incensement of dimensions of the canonical equation. For the convenience of deriving Hamilton isoparametric element formulations with four nodes, one can consider the temperature gradient equation as constitutive relation and reconstruct new variation principle. The homogeneous equation simplifies greatly the solution programs which are often performed to solve nonhomogeneous equation and second order differential equation on the thermal equilibrium and gradient relationship.

  19. Generalized reduced magnetohydrodynamic equations

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kruger, S.E.

    1999-02-01

    A new derivation of reduced magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations is presented. A multiple-time-scale expansion is employed. It has the advantage of clearly separating the three time scales of the problem associated with (1) MHD equilibrium, (2) fluctuations whose wave vector is aligned perpendicular to the magnetic field, and (3) those aligned parallel to the magnetic field. The derivation is carried out without relying on a large aspect ratio assumption; therefore this model can be applied to any general configuration. By accounting for the MHD equilibrium and constraints to eliminate the fast perpendicular waves, equations are derived to evolve scalar potential quantities on a time scale associated with the parallel wave vector (shear-Alfven wave time scale), which is the time scale of interest for MHD instability studies. Careful attention is given in the derivation to satisfy energy conservation and to have manifestly divergence-free magnetic fields to all orders in the expansion parameter. Additionally, neoclassical closures and equilibrium shear flow effects are easily accounted for in this model. Equations for the inner resistive layer are derived which reproduce the linear ideal and resistive stability criterion of Glasser, Greene, and Johnson. The equations have been programmed into a spectral initial value code and run with shear flow that is consistent with the equilibrium input into the code. Linear results of tearing modes with shear flow are presented which differentiate the effects of shear flow gradients in the layer with the effects of the shear flow decoupling multiple harmonics.

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available We present a new equation describing the hydrodynamics in infinitely long tidal channels (i.e., no reflection under the influence of oceanic forcing. The proposed equation is a simple relationship between partial derivatives of water level and velocity. It is formally derived for a progressive wave in a frictionless, prismatic, tidal channel with a horizontal bed. Assessment of a large number of numerical simulations, where an open boundary condition is posed at a certain distance landward, suggests that it can also be considered accurate in the more natural case of converging estuaries with nonlinear friction and a bed slope. The equation follows from the open boundary condition and is therefore a part of the problem formulation for an infinite tidal channel. This finding provides a practical tool for evaluating tidal wave dynamics, by reconstructing the temporal variation of the velocity based on local observations of the water level, providing a fully local open boundary condition and allowing for local friction calibration.

    2016-10-01

    We present the quantum master equations for midsize molecules in the presence of an external magnetic field. The Hamiltonian describing the dynamics of a molecule accounts for the molecular deformation and orientation properties, as well as for the electronic properties. In order to establish the master equations governing the relaxation of free-standing molecules, we have to split the molecule into two weakly interacting parts, a bath and a bathed system. The adequate choice of these systems depends on the specific physical system under consideration. Here we consider a first system consisting of the molecular deformation and orientation properties and the electronic spin properties and a second system composed of the remaining electronic spatial properties. If the characteristic time scale associated with the second system is small with respect to that of the first, the second may be considered as a bath for the first. Assuming that both systems are weakly coupled and initially weakly correlated, we obtain the corresponding master equations. They describe notably the relaxation of magnetic properties of midsize molecules, where the change of the statistical properties of the electronic orbitals is expected to be slow with respect to the evolution time scale of the bathed system.

    Full Text Available Landauer’s principle is applied to information in the universe. Once stars began forming there was a constant information energy density as the increasing proportion of matter at high stellar temperatures exactly compensated for the expanding universe. The information equation of state was close to the dark energy value, w = -1, for a wide range of redshifts, 10 > z > 0.8, over one half of cosmic time. A reasonable universe information bit content of only 1087 bits is sufficient for information energy to account for all dark energy. A time varying equation of state with a direct link between dark energy and matter, and linked to star formation in particular, is clearly relevant to the cosmic coincidence problem. In answering the ‘Why now?’ question we wonder ‘What next?’ as we expect the information equation of state to tend towards w = 0 in the future.c

    By using the solutions of an auxiliary ordinary differential equation, a direct algebraic method is described to construct several kinds of exact travelling wave solutions for some nonlinear partial differential equations. By this method some physically important nonlinear equations are investigated and new exact travelling wave solutions are explicitly obtained with the aid of symbolic computation.

  8. The compressible adjoint equations in geodynamics: equations and numerical assessment

    Ghelichkhan, Siavash; Bunge, Hans-Peter

    2016-04-01

    The adjoint method is a powerful means to obtain gradient information in a mantle convection model relative to past flow structure. While the adjoint equations in geodynamics have been derived for the conservation equations of mantle flow in their incompressible form, the applicability of this approximation to Earth is limited, because density increases by almost a factor of two from the surface to the Core Mantle Boundary. Here we introduce the compressible adjoint equations for the conservation equations in the anelastic-liquid approximation. Our derivation applies an operator formulation in Hilbert spaces, to connect to recent work in seismology (Fichtner et al (2006)) and geodynamics (Horbach et al (2014)), where the approach was used to derive the adjoint equations for the wave equation and incompressible mantle flow. We present numerical tests of the newly derived equations based on twin experiments, focusing on three simulations. A first, termed Compressible, assumes the compressible forward and adjoint equations, and represents the consistent means of including compressibility effects. A second, termed Mixed, applies the compressible forward equation, but ignores compressibility effects in the adjoint equations, where the incompressible equations are used instead. A third simulation, termed Incompressible, neglects compressibility effects entirely in the forward and adjoint equations relative to the reference twin. The compressible and mixed formulations successfully restore earlier mantle flow structure, while the incompressible formulation yields noticeable artifacts. Our results suggest the use of a compressible formulation, when applying the adjoint method to seismically derived mantle heterogeneity structure.

    We discuss the basic properties of the gonihedric string and the problem of its formulation in continuum. We propose a generalization of the Dirac equation and of the corresponding gamma matrices in order to describe the gonihedric string. The wave function and the Dirac matrices are infinite-dimensional. The spectrum of the theory consists of particles and antiparticles of increasing half-integer spin lying on quasilinear trajectories of different slope. Explicit formulas for the mass spectrum allow to compute the string tension and thus demonstrate the string character of the theory.

    Entropy is a quantity which is of great importance in physics and chemistry. The concept comes out of thermodynamics, proposed by Rudolf Clausius in his analysis of Carnot cycle and linked by Ludwig Boltzmann to the number of specific ways in which a physical system may be arranged. Any physics classroom, in its task of learning physics, has therefore to face this crucial concept. As we will show in this paper, the lectures can be enriched by discussing dimensional equations linked to the entropy of some physical systems.

    We extend a conventional action system with a primitive action consisting of a differential equation and an evolution invariant. The semantics is given by a predicate transformer. The weakest liberal precondition is chosen, because it is not always desirable that steps corresponding to differential...... actions shall terminate. It is shown that the proposed differential action has a semantics which corresponds to a discrete approximation when the discrete step size goes to zero. The extension gives action systems the power to model real-time clocks and continuous evolutions within hybrid systems....

    Based on the theory of orthogonal program expansion[8-10],the paper proposes a method to transform programs by solving program equations.By the method,transformation goals are expressed in program equations,and achieved by solving these equations.Although such equations are usually too complicated to be solved directly,the orthogonal expansion of programs makes it possible to reduce such equations into systems of equations only containing simple constructors of programs.Then,the solutions of such equations can be derived by a system of solving and simplifying rules,and algebraic laws of programs.The paper discusses the methods to simplify and solve equations and gives some examples.

  16. ``Riemann equations'' in bidifferential calculus

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chvartatskyi, O.; Müller-Hoissen, F.; Stoilov, N.

    2015-10-01

    We consider equations that formally resemble a matrix Riemann (or Hopf) equation in the framework of bidifferential calculus. With different choices of a first-order bidifferential calculus, we obtain a variety of equations, including a semi-discrete and a fully discrete version of the matrix Riemann equation. A corresponding universal solution-generating method then either yields a (continuous or discrete) Cole-Hopf transformation, or leaves us with the problem of solving Riemann equations (hence an application of the hodograph method). If the bidifferential calculus extends to second order, solutions of a system of "Riemann equations" are also solutions of an equation that arises, on the universal level of bidifferential calculus, as an integrability condition. Depending on the choice of bidifferential calculus, the latter can represent a number of prominent integrable equations, like self-dual Yang-Mills, as well as matrix versions of the two-dimensional Toda lattice, Hirota's bilinear difference equation, (2+1)-dimensional Nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS), Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (KP) equation, and Davey-Stewartson equations. For all of them, a recent (non-isospectral) binary Darboux transformation result in bidifferential calculus applies, which can be specialized to generate solutions of the associated "Riemann equations." For the latter, we clarify the relation between these specialized binary Darboux transformations and the aforementioned solution-generating method. From (arbitrary size) matrix versions of the "Riemann equations" associated with an integrable equation, possessing a bidifferential calculus formulation, multi-soliton-type solutions of the latter can be generated. This includes "breaking" multi-soliton-type solutions of the self-dual Yang-Mills and the (2+1)-dimensional NLS equation, which are parametrized by solutions of Riemann equations.

Then we obtain the periodic or quasi-periodic solution of the equation. This generalizes the results of Lax and Novikov regarding the periodic or quasi-periodic solution of the KdV equation to the general case of isospectral Hamiltonian integrable equation. And finally, we discuss the AKNS hierarchy as a special example.

    This paper examines a possible effect of uncertainties, variability or heterogeneity of any dynamic system when being included in its evolution rule; the notion is illustrated with the advection dispersion equation, which describes the groundwater pollution model. An uncertain derivative is defined; some properties of the operator are presented. The operator is used to generalize the advection dispersion equation. The generalized equation differs from the standard equation in four properties. The generalized equation is solved via the variational iteration technique. Some illustrative figures are presented.

    For many years, the subject of functional equations has held a prominent place in the attention of mathematicians. In more recent years this attention has been directed to a particular kind of functional equation, an integral equation, wherein the unknown function occurs under the integral sign. The study of this kind of equation is sometimes referred to as the inversion of a definite integral. While scientists and engineers can already choose from a number of books on integral equations, this new book encompasses recent developments including some preliminary backgrounds of formulations of in

    2001-01-01

    The Hamiltonian formalism for surface waves and the mild-slope approximation were empolyed in handling the case of slowly varying three-dimensional currents and an uneven bottom, thus leading to an extended mild-slope equation. The bottom topography consists of two components: the slowly varying component whose horizontal length scale is longer than the surface wave length, and the fast varying component with the amplitude being smaller than that of the surface wave. The frequency of the fast varying depth component is, however, comparable to that of the surface waves. The extended mild- slope equation is more widely applicable and contains as special cases famous mild-slope equations below: the classical mild-slope equation of Berkhoff , Kirby' s mild-slope equation with current, and Dingemans' s mild-slope equation for rippled bed. The extended shallow water equations for ambient currents and rapidly varying topography are also obtained.

  8. Scaling of differential equations

    CERN Document Server

    Langtangen, Hans Petter

    2016-01-01

    The book serves both as a reference for various scaled models with corresponding dimensionless numbers, and as a resource for learning the art of scaling. A special feature of the book is the emphasis on how to create software for scaled models, based on existing software for unscaled models. Scaling (or non-dimensionalization) is a mathematical technique that greatly simplifies the setting of input parameters in numerical simulations. Moreover, scaling enhances the understanding of how different physical processes interact in a differential equation model. Compared to the existing literature, where the topic of scaling is frequently encountered, but very often in only a brief and shallow setting, the present book gives much more thorough explanations of how to reason about finding the right scales. This process is highly problem dependent, and therefore the book features a lot of worked examples, from very simple ODEs to systems of PDEs, especially from fluid mechanics. The text is easily accessible and exam...

  9. $\\Lambda$ Scattering Equations

    CERN Document Server

    Gomez, Humberto

    2016-01-01

    The CHY representation of scattering amplitudes is based on integrals over the moduli space of a punctured sphere. We replace the punctured sphere by a double-cover version. The resulting scattering equations depend on a parameter $\\Lambda$ controlling the opening of a branch cut. The new representation of scattering amplitudes possesses an enhanced redundancy which can be used to fix, modulo branches, the location of four punctures while promoting $\\Lambda$ to a variable. Via residue theorems we show how CHY formulas break up into sums of products of smaller (off-shell) ones times a propagator. This leads to a powerful way of evaluating CHY integrals of generic rational functions, which we call the $\\Lambda$ algorithm.

The corresponding Green function (heat kernel) is given in terms of elementary functions and certain integrals involving a characteristic function, which should be found as an analytic or numerical solution of the second order linear differential equation with time-dependent coefficients. Some special and limiting cases are outlined. Solution of the corresponding nonhomogeneous equation is also found.

    This paper accompanies the first release of libmpdata++, a C++ library implementing the multi-dimensional positive-definite advection transport algorithm (MPDATA) on regular structured grid. The library offers basic numerical solvers for systems of generalised transport equations. The solvers are forward-in-time, conservative and non-linearly stable. The libmpdata++ library covers the basic second-order-accurate formulation of MPDATA, its third-order variant, the infinite-gauge option for variable-sign fields and a flux-corrected transport extension to guarantee non-oscillatory solutions. The library is equipped with a non-symmetric variational elliptic solver for implicit evaluation of pressure gradient terms. All solvers offer parallelisation through domain decomposition using shared-memory parallelisation. The paper describes the library programming interface, and serves as a user guide. Supported options are illustrated with benchmarks discussed in the MPDATA literature. Benchmark descriptions include code snippets as well as quantitative representations of simulation results. Examples of applications include homogeneous transport in one, two and three dimensions in Cartesian and spherical domains; a shallow-water system compared with analytical solution (originally derived for a 2-D case); and a buoyant convection problem in an incompressible Boussinesq fluid with interfacial instability. All the examples are implemented out of the library tree. Regardless of the differences in the problem dimensionality, right-hand-side terms, boundary conditions and parallelisation approach, all the examples use the same unmodified library, which is a key goal of libmpdata++ design. The design, based on the principle of separation of concerns, prioritises the user and developer productivity. The libmpdata++ library is implemented in C++, making use of the Blitz++ multi-dimensional array containers, and is released as free/libre and open-source software.

  13. Mode decomposition evolution equations.

    Wang, Yang; Wei, Guo-Wei; Yang, Siyang

    2012-03-01

    Partial differential equation (PDE) based methods have become some of the most powerful tools for exploring the fundamental problems in signal processing, image processing, computer vision, machine vision and artificial intelligence in the past two decades. The advantages of PDE based approaches are that they can be made fully automatic, robust for the analysis of images, videos and high dimensional data. A fundamental question is whether one can use PDEs to perform all the basic tasks in the image processing. If one can devise PDEs to perform full-scale mode decomposition for signals and images, the modes thus generated would be very useful for secondary processing to meet the needs in various types of signal and image processing. Despite of great progress in PDE based image analysis in the past two decades, the basic roles of PDEs in image/signal analysis are only limited to PDE based low-pass filters, and their applications to noise removal, edge detection, segmentation, etc. At present, it is not clear how to construct PDE based methods for full-scale mode decomposition. The above-mentioned limitation of most current PDE based image/signal processing methods is addressed in the proposed work, in which we introduce a family of mode decomposition evolution equations (MoDEEs) for a vast variety of applications. The MoDEEs are constructed as an extension of a PDE based high-pass filter (Europhys. Lett., 59(6): 814, 2002) by using arbitrarily high order PDE based low-pass filters introduced by Wei (IEEE Signal Process. Lett., 6(7): 165, 1999). The use of arbitrarily high order PDEs is essential to the frequency localization in the mode decomposition. Similar to the wavelet transform, the present MoDEEs have a controllable time-frequency localization and allow a perfect reconstruction of the original function. Therefore, the MoDEE operation is also called a PDE transform. However, modes generated from the present approach are in the spatial or time domain and can be

    This modern take on partial differential equations does not require knowledge beyond vector calculus and linear algebra. The author focuses on the most important classical partial differential equations, including conservation equations and their characteristics, the wave equation, the heat equation, function spaces, and Fourier series, drawing on tools from analysis only as they arise.Within each section the author creates a narrative that answers the five questions: (1) What is the scientific problem we are trying to understand? (2) How do we model that with PDE? (3) What techniques can we use to analyze the PDE? (4) How do those techniques apply to this equation? (5) What information or insight did we obtain by developing and analyzing the PDE? The text stresses the interplay between modeling and mathematical analysis, providing a thorough source of problems and an inspiration for the development of methods.

  15. Energy Conservation Equations of Motion

    CERN Document Server

    Vinokurov, Nikolay A

    2015-01-01

    A conventional derivation of motion equations in mechanics and field equations in field theory is based on the principle of least action with a proper Lagrangian. With a time-independent Lagrangian, a function of coordinates and velocities that is called energy is constant. This paper presents an alternative approach, namely derivation of a general form of equations of motion that keep the system energy, expressed as a function of generalized coordinates and corresponding velocities, constant. These are Lagrange equations with addition of gyroscopic forces. The important fact, that the energy is defined as the function on the tangent bundle of configuration manifold, is used explicitly for the derivation. The Lagrangian is derived from a known energy function. A development of generalized Hamilton and Lagrange equations without the use of variational principles is proposed. The use of new technique is applied to derivation of some equations.

    2015-12-15

    The JWL equation of state (EOS) is frequently used for the products (and sometimes reactants) of a high explosive (HE). Here we review and systematically derive important properties. The JWL EOS is of the Mie-Grueneisen form with a constant Grueneisen coefficient and a constants specific heat. It is thermodynamically consistent to specify the temperature at a reference state. However, increasing the reference state temperature restricts the EOS domain in the (V, e)-plane of phase space. The restrictions are due to the conditions that P ≥ 0, T ≥ 0, and the isothermal bulk modulus is positive. Typically, this limits the low temperature regime in expansion. The domain restrictions can result in the P-T equilibrium EOS of a partly burned HE failing to have a solution in some cases. For application to HE, the heat of detonation is discussed. Example JWL parameters for an HE, both products and reactions, are used to illustrate the restrictions on the domain of the EOS.
