Abstract:

This study explores optimal control via modelling of an open-channel flow, primarily pertaining to the general problem of drag resistance associated with gravity waves in a stably stratified fluid, and the influence of gravity waves on offshore structures. The study applies the results reported in the existing literature to gravity gradient waves using essentially both analytical and numerical techniques, and establishes, among others, detailed characterization of drag resistance effects for application to free and forced conditions in open channel flow.
