A three-dimensional wave motion is set up in water by an infinitely long vibrating strip, placed along and perpendicularly to the undisturbed water surface. The strip performs a flexural wave motion in the direction which is parallel to this surface. If the wave-length of the flexural vibration is small with respect to the width of the strip, expressions can be derived for the amplitude of the water wave motion at large distance and the loss of energy by radiation. If the wave-length is large, the water motion becomes two-dimensional.
