In poetry:

The tidal wave of deeper souls
Into our inmost being rolls,
And lifts us unawares
Out of all meaner cares.

Mistook a little ripple blue,
While fathoms deep below your line
The sea's lost treasures sleep for you;

As the sea in the strait sea-caves,
The sound came straitened and strange;
A noise of the rending of graves,
A tidal thunder of waves,
The music of death and of change.

In what cold seas, under what winters' reign,
— Who can e'er know, O nacreous, fragile Shell! —
Hast thou through current, wave and tidal swell,
In shallows and abysses restless lain?

Each creek becomes a river, each pool a little sea,
The tidal wave comes rushing on, men know not where to flee,
But on he rides, still shouting, as angels did of old,
"Flee! Flee ye to the mountain! Flee! forsake your homes and gold!"

In science:

Information of the tidal disruption is reflected in a clear relation between the compactness of the neutron star and an appropriately defined “cutoff frequency” in the gravitational-wave spectrum, above which the spectrum damps exponentially.
Gravitational waves from spinning black hole-neutron star binaries: dependence on black hole spins and on neutron star equations of state
For a binary with (Q, a) = (3, 0.75), gravitational waves show a sudden decrease in the amplitude at tret ≈ 27 ms, which is a clear signature of tidal disruption.
Gravitational waves from spinning black hole-neutron star binaries: dependence on black hole spins and on neutron star equations of state
For binaries with (Q, a) = (3, ≤ 0), on the other hand, gravitational waves end up with ringdown waveforms associated with the remnant BHs because the tidal effect is very weak throughout the merger.
Gravitational waves from spinning black hole-neutron star binaries: dependence on black hole spins and on neutron star equations of state
It is noteworthy that the BH-NS binary with a high mass ratio of Q & 5 is a more promising target for ground-based gravitational-wave detectors if the BH has a prograde spin and the NS tidal disruption occurs.

The waves in turn interact with the tidal field to produce a stress that increases the disk eccentricity exponentially in time.

The latter describes the locally free gravitational field, namely tidal forces and gravity waves.
Gravitational waves and cosmic magnetism; a cosmological approach
An essential mechanism by which gravitational waves interact with matter relies on the tidal forces produced on objects with structure in a gravitational field.
On the motion of spinning test particles in plane gravitational waves
By contrast the dynamical response of spinning test particles to strong tidal forces produced by nearby gravitational events is less well understood although it had been suggested that the scattering of particles by plane gravitational waves provides a good local representation for such a physical process .
On the motion of spinning test particles in plane gravitational waves
He showed that quadrupole gravitational waves emitted during the tidal disruption process are described reasonable well (within ≈ 5%) by a point particle approximation even in the strong encounter case.

These include: the formation of super star clusters (SSCs), SF in tidal bridges and tails, and SF in induced disk waves.

This is not entirely clear in the case of disk waves and tidal tails.
Galaxy Collisions - Dawn of a New Era
The displaced gas disk experiences tidal compression (perpendicular to the disk plane) and asymmetric torques in the tilted case, which generate spiral waves.
Galaxy Collisions - Dawn of a New Era
There are wave and tidal morphologies characteristic of cases with two close passes separated by a time interval of order the mean internal dynamical (e.g., rotational) time in the primary disk.
Galaxy Collisions - Dawn of a New Era
At later times, closer to the merger, tidal interactions lead to a higher frequency orbit; this, together with correspondingly stronger gravitational wave emission, means the BHNS phase accumulates faster than the EOB phase.
