## Overview

The Stokes wave is an analytical model for regular (each wave looks identical), steady (the wave form doesn't change with time) and unidirectional (all travelling in the same direction) waves. In such an environment, the Stoke's solution provides an accurate description of both the surface elevation and all the underlying kinematics. In particular it is the first model to demonstrate that:- the wave velocity increases slightly with increase of wave steepness.
- the wave profile is more peaked at the crests with wide, less shallow, troughs.
- the trajectories of water particles are not closed, leading to a mass transport in the direction of the waves, often called Stoke's drift.
- the waves break when the wave crest angle reached .

## Class Stokes

This Stokes class provides a rapid mechanism for computing the surface elevation and internal kinematics within a wave. It is optimised on the assumption that many requests will be made for different spatial and temporal locations, where as the wave properties and water depth will be varied less frequently.### Example 1

- To following example outputs the surface elevation and then the velocities beneath the central wave:
#include <codecogs/engineering/fluid_mechanics/waves/analytic/stokes.h> #include <stdio.h> int main() { double Length=200; // Wave length [m] double Amplitude=15; // Wave Height [m] double Depth=30; // Depth [m] double time=0; // Time [seconds] Engineering::Waves::Analytic::Stokes water(2*pi()/Length, amplitude, 0, depth); for(double x=-200;x<=200;x+=10) printf("\n Eta(%lf)=%lf",x, water.getEta(x, time); double eta=water.getEta(0,0); for(double z=eta;z>-30;z--) printf("\n Phi(%lf)=%lf\tu(%lf)=%lf\tv(%lf)=%lf", z, water.getKin(0,z,time), z, water.getKin(0,z,time,ddx), z, water.getKin(0,z,time,ddz); }
