On the decrease of kinetic energy with depth in wave–current interactions
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
We study wave–current interactions in two-dimensional water flows with constant vorticity over a flat bed. We establish decay rates for the velocity beneath spatially periodic surface waves without any restrictions on the wave amplitude. The approach relies on complex function theory and overcomes the intricacies inherent to nonlinear flow patterns by taking advantage of specific structural properties of the governing equations for water waves.
