MECHMATH team discovered a harmonic
locking phenomenon in sea-harbor systems
The harmonic locking relates to systems
of two (or more) enclosed water bodies and consists
of tuning the oscillations of system’s parts.
This discovery is central in the prediction
of changes in harbor caused by large-scale engineering
and flood prediction.
The phenomenon was discovered numerically
and it is shown for the pair the Mediterranean Sea (blue in the figure below) and the Adriatic Sea (red).
