Stationary waves, also called standing waves, are formed by the superposition of two waves of the same amplitude and frequency moving in opposite directions [10].
the effect consists in that that the producing of reflected waves will give birth in the piston of the pipe a series of stationary waves, none raising energy in liquid will results, pressures won't outrun fixed limit.
Forel is, I think, most certain; that they are waves originally caused by winds; but that they are reflected from one side and another of the limited sea, and thus become stationary waves.
