  • Boundary layer flow beneath an internal solitary wave of elevation 

    Carr, Magda; Davies, P A (2010-02) - Journal article
    The wave-induced flow over a fixed bottom boundary beneath an internal solitary wave of elevation propagating in an unsheared, two-layer, stably stratified fluid is investigated experimentally. Measurements of the velocity ...
  • The characteristics of billows generated by internal solitary waves 

    Carr, Magda; Franklin, James; King, Stuart Edward; Davies, Peter; Grue, John; Dritschel, David Gerard (2017-02) - Journal article
    The spatial and temporal development of shear-induced overturning billows associated with breaking internal solitary waves is studied by means of a combined laboratory and numerical investigation. The waves are generated ...
  • Numerical simulation of shear-induced instabilities in internal solitary waves 

    Carr, Magda; King, Stuart Edward; Dritschel, David Gerard (2011-09-25) - Journal article
    A numerical method that employs a combination of contour advection and pseudo-spectral techniques is used to simulate shear-induced instabilities in an internal solitary wave (ISW). A three-layer configuration for the ...
  • The steady-state form of large-amplitude internal solitary waves 

    King, Stuart Edward; Carr, Magda; Dritschel, David Gerard (2011-01-10) - Journal article
    A new numerical scheme for obtaining the steady-state form of an internal solitary wave of large amplitude is presented. A stratified inviscid two-dimensional fluid under the Boussinesq approximation flowing between ...
