Given the paucity of empirical 2-D wave data from which to develop 2-D variance spectra, the common procedure is to start with a 1-D or omnidirectional spectrum and add an angular spreading function to distribute the wave energy over different directions relative to the downwind direction. In nature, most waves travel more or less downwind, a. 3. Wave Statistics 4. Wave Spectra 5. FFT (decompose) and IFFT (superposition or simulation) Regular and Irregular Waves. Ocean waves are almost always irregular or random. Irregular waves can be viewed as the superpositionof a number of regular waves (wave File Size: KB.

WAVE SPECTRA 3 For a value of N = 3, a1=N is considered the signiflcant wave amplitude where a1=N 2¾ = 2 p Mo for" wave height is deflned as twice the signiflcant wave amplitude, () H1=3 = 2a1=3: This value is very close to that which a casual observer would estimate as the wave height when watching. 1. Ocean Wave Spectra 1. Wave energy spectra. Red text indicates wave generation mechanisms and blue text indicates damping/restoring forces. The majority of ocean waves are wind generated. Other wave generating mechanisms include earthquakes and . 1. Introduction. A vibration FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) spectrum is an incredibly useful tool for machinery vibration analysis. If a machinery problem exists, FFT spectra provide information to help determine the source and cause of the problem and, with trending, how long until the .

The translational energy relates to the displacement of molecules in space as a function of the normal thermal motions of matter. Rotational energy, which gives rise to its own form of spectroscopy, is observed as the tumbling motion of a molecule, which is the result of the absorption of energy within the microwave region.

Analysis and interpretation of frequency-wavenumber spectra of young wind waves. nonlinear wave–wave interactions that are expected to determine the shape of the wave spectrum. There is also a need to resolve wave directions without the 8 ambi-guity of 2D snapshots used by, for example, Banner et al. () and Yurovskaya et al.
