The Effect of Density of Sea Water on the Motion of Shock Waves

M. Yadav [4] | Rohitashw Kumar [2] | Arvind Kumar [12]


Abstract: Chester-Chisnell-Whitham method, a very well known theory in shock dynamics is used to study the effect of density on underwater earthquake to analyse the tsunami. Neglecting the effect of overtaking disturbances, the analytical relations for shock strength, shock velocity, particle velocity and pressure are obtained for two cases viz. (1) when shock waves are diverging and (2) when they are converging. Finally, the flow variables are computed and discussed with the help of tables.
