Title Tsunamis: Non-Breaking and Breaking Solitary Wave Run-Up
Creator Li, Ying
Description This study considers the run-up of non-breaking and breaking solitary waves on a smooth sloping beach. A non-linear theory and a numerical model solving the non-linear shallow water equations (NLSW) were developed to model this physical process. Various experiments to obtain wave amplitude time-histories, water particle velocities, wave free surface profiles, and maximum run-up were conducted and the results were compared with the analytical and numerical models. A higher order theoretical...
