Visualization of wave kinematics on the World Wide Web: An interactive instructional tool
Additional Document Info
This paper presents an instructional tool for wave kinematics being developed at the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University. The interactive tool is intended to offer visualizations of various conditions of water waves and their effects on the surroundings. The pilot project of this development has been successful in establishing the framework of an interactive instructional tool on the World Wide Web for usage in and out of class. It is anticipated that the final outcome of this work will enhance the learning process on the subject of ocean wave theory by developing an electronic classroom or electronic textbook.
