Those were not waves: A bit historical re. Huygens' principle

A few points that might be of general interest:

1. The dates: The date of Huygens' first written down material, which was orally presented to the French Academy of Sciences, is 1678---in contrast to the oft-quoted date of 1690. 1690 was the year of the first, French, publication of these notes (plus other material) in the form of a book.

A mathematician's take on "what is light?"

Attached is an intriguing commentary on the scientific method through an example, written by my good friend, Luc Tartar. The specific example is that of trying to understand what 'light' might be, especially from a mathematician's point of view. The mathematician in this case is an extremely talented one, who also happens to actually understand a whole lot of physics and mechanics.

Water waves simulation with Abaqus

Hi everybody,

 

I want to simulate water waves using abaqus. I want design a good reef, in order to improve the waves to surf.

 

I'm Abaqus user (plasticity, elasticity, heat transfer...) but I never simulate water an less waves. Can someone help me or give me some indications to start???

 

 

Thanks a lot
