Wave motion produced by linear wave generators
Taking the potential function for waves emanating from a point source, equations were developed that permit ready calculation of the water surface in a rectangular wave basin having several finite length displacement type wave generators in series along the walls of the basin. The linearized wave theory is utilized throughout. A discrete wave amplitude and frequency is assumed for each generator, but no two generators necessarily put out the same wave. The theory, extended to several finite length generators each considered as a source of a periodic function, will be presented in future reports ...
