Abstract

Wave propagation and damping mechanisms due to an elastic coating at the sea surface is considered. A two-way coupling model describing wave motion in a two-phase medium comprising an elastic cover on a viscous fluid that accounts for interactions between the phases is considered within the frames of the boundary layer type approximation. An asymptotic linearized model including the Navier-Stokes equations for the viscous incompressible fluid and the deformable plate motion equations for the elastic cover is analyzed for a wide range of governing parameter variations. The dispersion relationship for different Reynolds numbers shows different oscillation regimes. The structure of the fluid flow is studied in detail for two asymptotic limiting cases of high and low influence, of the elastic coating on the surface wave propagation and damping.
