Abstract

Measurements of water wave profiles were performed in a rectangular flume equipped with a modular wavemaker. This particular wavemaker could generate both two- and three-dimensional waves. A method is proposed to evaluate quantitatively the deviations of a spacial flow field from the two-dimensional one. Plane propagating waves, as well as pure sloshing waves with their crests parallel to the walls, were generated in the flume. In all cases the measured amplitudes were compared against linear theory predictions.
