Numerical Modeling of Internal Waves ‎Generated by Turbulent Wakes Behind Self-Propelled and Towed Bodies ‎in a Stable Stratified Fluid ‎

Voropaeva O.F., Moshkin N.P., Chernykh G.G.

We give the results of numerical modelling of the dynamics of internal waves generated by turbulent wakes behind self-propelled and towed bodies in stable stratified medium. We consider the cases of linear and nonlinear an undisturbed fluid density distribution on depth. It is shown that the turbulent wake behind a towed body generates waves of much larger amplitude, than the wake behind self-propelled body. The physical interpretation of the result obtained is given.
