    1 Surface Waves. Waves affect a large number of marine activities and biochemical processes that take place on and below the ocean surface. The widespread wind‐generated waves are, for example, responsible for inducing considerable loads on marine structures such as ships and offshore platforms, pipelines, mooring systems, renewable energy installations, and port activities among many others. Recognizing that (a) ice–albedo feedback (see, e.g., Deser et al. ) will be assisted by ocean waves, which alter atmosphere/ice/ocean fluxes by breaking up ice, and (b) wave stress is of similar order to wind stress over large areas of the MIZ, making wave forcing significant for the MIZ's overall dynamics (see Figure 1), the omission of.

Evaluation of ocean wave-induced liquefaction in a large scale wave flume by David Leo Thielen Download PDF EPUB FB2

In recognition of the need to study ocean wave-induced liquefaction, a series of large scale wave flume tests were conducted.

The test program consisted of generating a series of uniform waves over a sand deposit and measuring the pore pressure response. The pore pressure response was studied for a variety of soil and wave : David Leo Thielen. Pore pressure accumulation can result in liquefaction or\ud a substantial decrease in the effective stress with attendant large\ud deformations of the seabed deposit.\ud In recognition of the need to study ocean wave-induced\ud liquefaction, a series of large scale wave flume tests were conducted.\ud The test program consisted of generating a.

Some laboratory wave flume tests have been conducted for this problem (Chang et al.,Sassa and Sekiguchi,Sumer et al.,Kirca et al.,Summer et al., ).

Their experimental results played very important role in improving our recognition on wave-induced liquefaction in loose seabed by:   Wave period, inertial terms, and wave nonlinearity affect the response for an open domain and in the presence of a wall, mostly leading to more liquefaction.

DOI:. In this paper, a simplified assessment method for the wave-induced liquefied depth in a shallow seabed is proposed. By introducing a weighting factor, both the oscillatory and residual pore pressures were considered in the liquefaction by: 8.

The scouring of seabed beneath an unburied pipeline under regular waves was investigated in a large wave flume. Sands and silts were employed for the contrast experiment and the results obtained. However due to limitation of small wave flume, most experiments focused on the normal waves.

Extreme waves are the input parameters for structure design on reefs. Thus, experiments of extreme waves propagating over reefs were conducted in the large wave flume of the Tianjin Research Institute of Water Transport Engineering. The present tests are conducted in the new Québec Coastal Physics Laboratory, Canada.

The flume has a depth and a width of 5 m and is m long. This paper presents large scale experiments of water wave impact on a vertical wall following wave runup on a mixed sand-gravel-cobble beach. Wave-induced seabed instability caused by the residual liquefaction of seabed may threaten the safety of an offshore foundation.

Most previous studies have focused on the structure that sits on the seabed surface (e.g., breakwater and pipeline), a few studies investigate the structure embedded into the seabed (e.g.

a mono-pile). The second wave collided with the first wave in the middle of the flume after being reflected by the side wall of the flume and then they separated (Figure 3f); we supplemented the energy lost during the propagation in the same way.

Continuous waves with different frequencies were formed in the flume. Sediment resuspension can be caused by physical processes such as tidal, wind-driven currents, and wind waves [].In a shallow water environment, waves have been found to dominate the sediment resuspension process due to wave orbital shear stresses [17,18,19,20] or wave pumping of sediments [].Moreover, wave-induced pore pressure build-ups significantly promote the resuspension of.

It is known that the magnitude of wave-induced pressure at the seabed changes as ocean waves move in towards the shore.

In unison with the changes in the pressure wave, the cyclic stress ratio induced in the seabed also changes. Ocean wave-induced liquefaction analysis. Geotech. Eng. Div. ASCE, (GT4), – Google Scholar. In recognition of the need to study ocean wave-induced liquefaction, a series of large scale wave flume tests were con-ducted.

The test program consisted of generating a series of uniform waves over a sand deposit and measuring the pore pressure response. The pore pressure response was studied for a variety of soil and wave conditions. Many incidents with catastrophic consequences have occurred as a result of wave-induced liquefaction of the seabed or the reduction of the structural strength of.

A model flume was newly developed to simulate the wave-induced liquefaction in seabed around a breakwater with a reduced model scale against the caisson type breakwater widely used in Japan.

The dimension of developed flume was the length of m, the width of m and the depth of m. wave-induced maximum liquefaction depth between 0 to 1m. This study has shown the capability of the MANN model and provides coastal engineers with another effective tool to analyse the stability of the marine sediment.

WAVE-INDUECED SEABED LIQUEFACTION In this study, we consider an ocean wave propagating over a porous seabed of infinite thickness. [8] From equations (7) and, one can see that Bv is a key factor for determining the wave‐induced mixing strength and should be added to ocean circulation model as a part of the vertical kinematic viscosity (or diffusivity).

Results Global Distribution of Wave‐Induced Mixing [9] In this study the MASNUM wave number spectrum is used to compute Bv with α = 1. Wave Test Cases. Two sets of centrifuge wave tests were performed on loosely packed, fresh deposits of fine sand (Table 1).Three tests (Cases 1, 2, and 5) absent from the table were the cases of a sand bed without a pipe, in which the fundamental characteristics of wave-induced liquefaction were observed, and essentially had the same behavior as in Sassa and Sekiguchi ().

The dynamic stress introduced in half elastic space by wave loading is characterized by the equation between the magnitude of half cyclic axial stress and cyclic torsion shear stress and the principal stress, whose direction rotates continuously and compression stress on seabed can be calculated by the use of small amplitude wave theory.

With relationship curves of saturated silt of. An evaluation of wave-induced liquefaction is one of the most important factors, which must be considered in the design of marine structures.

Numerous models for wave-induced liquefaction have been proposed in the past. However, all previous models have been based on the conventional approaches of engineering mechanics with limited laboratory work. The current method of wave generation is similar to the large scale tests of the Sloshel project, where the effective flume length is scaled with the length-scale (λ) of the depth-based Froude number (i.e., λ = h 0 /H λ = 1/6, with h 0 being the current water depth and H λ the being the full-scale water depth).

20 W.To provide quantitative insight into pore pressure responses under random waves, especially long waves, we conducted a unique large-scale flume experiment at Ocean University of China. As shown in Fig. 1, the wave flume was 60 m long, m wide, and m high.

A sediment pit ( m by m by m) was located 38 m from the wave generator.The wave-induced liquefaction is examined on the basis of the liquefaction criterion proposed by the authors. The effective stress in the seabed varies periodically in accordance with the propagation of ocean waves, (2) The variation of the vertical effective stress is expressed by the difference between the wave-associated bottom pressure.
