SHOALING OF SOLITARY WAVES ON A 45-DEG SLOPE.
URS CORP BURLINGAME CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
Construction of the solitary wave from the field of a single dipole doublet within a closed domain is reviewed. Computer results are presented for wave profiles - both of solitary waves propagating in fluid of uniform depth an d of waves in various states of deformation on a 45-degree slope. Determination of unique correspondence between solitary waves in the state of steady propagation and wave profiles in a state of deformation on the slope has not been completed but the range of possible deformed profiles on the slope that are accessible to the stable solitary waves is illustrated and discussed. Solitary wave profiles for fluid of uniform depth in the range of amplitude-to-depth ratios from 0.20 to 0.88 are also included for easy comparison with experiment. Author
