# Dissipation time

The theoretical expression of waves' dissipation time is $\displaystyle T = \frac{\rho a^2 L^2}{4 \mu g^2}$.

The influence of the parameters (viscosity $\mu$, tank's length L, initial water level h, and plan's acceleration a) will be studied to obtain the limits of this expression and to validate the numerical model.
