Cursusdoelen
After completion of the course, the student
                1.  has in-depth knowledge of the equations of motion that govern wind waves, and knows how to compute and interpret the characteristics of free waves governed by these equations;
                2. is acquainted with with the basic principles of wave-current interaction and wave-wave interactions;
                3. knows the main models and mechanisms that describe the generation of waves by wind, and is able to find solutions of these models;
                4. is acquainted and can work with the basic concepts of random waves, including the wave spectrum, and knows how these concepts are implemented in modern wave prediction models.
                5. has in-depth knowledge about both the qualitative and quantitative modelling aspects of tidal forces (constituents, equilibrium tide) and understands the differences with the equations that govern short wind waves,
                6. is able to give a full quantitative and physical description of tidal waves in channels and in semi-enclosed basins;
                7. has worked in team that prepared and gave a joint presentation to the other students about the contents of several scientific papers on ocean waves and relate the contents of these papers to the topics of the course.
Inhoud

Part 1: free short waves, wave generation by wind, statistical description of waves, wave spectrum, wave prediction models.              
Part 2: tidal forces and tidal potential, free long waves (Kelvin/PoincarĂ©), Taylor problem, forced waves: co-oscillation problem.
