Overturned Internal Capillary–gravity Waves
A vortex sheet formulation of irrotational, incompressible Euler flow is used to compute periodic traveling waves at the interface between two constant-density, two-dimensional fluids, including waves with overturned crests. Branches of traveling waves are computed via numerical continuation, which are jointly continuous in the physical parameters: Bond number, Atwood number and mean shear.
