Abstract:

The report completes a study of solitary waves shoaling on a 45-deg slope. Computed wave shapes in various stages of deformation are presented and a direct comparison with experimental wave shapes is made. Agreement is uniformly good over the whole range of stages of deformed wave motion and for all wave heights from the inception of runup to the final stages of fluid motion on the slope. A study was also made of improving the accuracy of the steady-state representation of a solitary wave through use of a two-dipole approximation to the potential greater accuracy was obtained with little change in the wave shape from the single-dipole representation used heretofore.
