Problem 2-1. (55 points)Part 1Waves normally incident on a straight gently sloping beach are recorded to have a wave height of 1.2mand a wave period of 7.5s in water depths of 4m. Assume linear wave theory is valid and neglectreflection and energy dissipation.1. What is the wave height and wave length in deep water condition?Part 2Waves with wave height 0.8m and a wave period of 7.5s are obliquely incident on a long straight beachof gently slow. The angle of incidence in deep water is 33°.2. Use linear wave theory and estimate the wave height and angle of incidence for a water depth of 8mand 4m. Compare the results with that of Part 1.Problem 2-2. (45 points)Determine whether Stokes wave or Cnoidal wave should be used in the following conditions. (Use linearwave theory to calculate Ursell parameter). (The choice of transition from one form of wave theory toanother depends on the individual problem.)1.
