Abstract

Two-dimensional free surface flows generated by a moving distribution of pressure are considered. The bottom is assumed to be covered by a thin layer of mud. The mud is modelled as a viscous fluid. The problem is solved numerically by a boundary integral equation method. It is shown that the layer of mud produces a damping of the waves in the far field. Profiles of the free surface and of the surface of the mud are presented.
