Plot which shows relationship between wavelength, wave period and water depth.

Updated 11 Feb 2008

This function gets the nomograph which shows the relationship between the wavelength, wave period and water depth using the dispersion equation.

0. Syntax:
>> wavelenvsth

1. Inputs:
None.

2. Outputs:
Nomograph.

3. Example:
>> run(wavelenvsth)

4. Notes:
- It's only necessary to run the function.
- In the nomograph, it is activated the data cursor mode in order to get the wavelength and waver depth in function of the water period.
- Wave depths in meters.
- Wave length in meters.

Es interesante este tipo de ejemplos aplicados de modelos hidrodinámicos, soy Ingeniero en Acuicultura y me interesa aplicar MatLab en el diseño de sistemas recirculados en acuicultura, poder acercarme a modelos predecibles de la hidrodinámica en diferentes circuitos y componentes, estanques, dispositivos de tratamientos, tuberías sometidas a diferentes cargas, fluidos con diferentes pesos específicos y viscosidades, etc..
Es un campo, creo, inexplorado, pero con creciente necesidad de cultivar, saludos.
