  • 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 ...
