edge wave

edge wave

[′ej ‚wāv]
(oceanography)
An ocean wave moving parallel to the coast, with crests normal to the coastline; maximum amplitude is at shore, with amplitude falling off exponentially farther from shore.

Substantial progress has been made on a number of past and current EPSRC project grants held by the lead partners in this CCP bid to develop and test the primary elements of a numerical wave tank and to carry out cutting edge wave impact experiments alongside new opensource CFD code development.
[11] developed a three-dimensional numerical model to predict the edge wave behavior of hotrolled steel strip on the ROT based on the FE method.

They are always on the lookout for some cutting edge wave to ride to fame and fortune.
Here he presents a comprehensive description of it based on the concept of elementary edge waves. His topics include basic notions in acoustic and electromagnetic diffraction problems, wedge diffraction: radiation by fringe components of surface sources, the axially symmetrical scattering of acoustic waves at bodies of revolution, ray and caustic asymptotics for edge diffracted waves, the diffraction interaction of neighboring edges on a ruled surface, focusing multiple edge waves diffracted at a disk, and backscattering at a finite-length cylinder.

The best result was achieved by Ufimtsev [9] who obtained the solution for a strip in the form of a series in sequential edge waves excited by different its edges.
These singularities have been interpreted as evanescent edge waves emitted by the diffracting edge, as originally presumed by Thomas Young but soon refuted by Fresnel.
Two solutions present the dispersion curves of two fast waves that propagate in different directions with the same phase speed; they are called edge waves. The periods of these waves are ten times or more shorter than the local inertial period.
If the tactical knife industry were a reality show, Masters of Defense would be the of the edge waves. As knife manufacturers go, nobody puts out more aggressive looking tactical knives on a more consistent basis than Masters of Defense.
Disclosed also herein is a method of producing the cross-grained veneer, said method comprising cutting wood into veneer of desired thickness which assumes the straight grain, by using a veneer peeling machine equipped with a knife whose cutting edge waves continuously in the lengthwise direction, and flattening the veneer having an uneven surface by means of thermal fixing or hot pressing, thereby artificially forming the cross grain on the surface of the straight-grained veneer.
Studying a class of coastal surface waves known as "edge waves," he developed a theoretical model showing that deep-sea internal waves impinging upon a steep continental margin could produce coastal edge waves of significant amplitude.
