Along both side-walls of a wave tank, a region of horizontal, cellular, steady streaming is formed on and near the free surface of a fluid making a standing wave motion in the tank. Streamline patterns of this wave-induced streaming are computed by using a model, in which the fluid viscosity is considered only in the horizontal fluid motion. The computed streamline patterns agree qualitatively with observation.
