Shoaling and Breaking of Solitary Waves on Slopes

Rui You, Guanghua He, Yongzhou Cheng, and Xiaoqun Ju
Abstract—Physical experiments were designed and conducted in the water channel to investigate the generation, propagation and shoaling of solitary waves over three different slopes. Firstly, an introduction to the experimental apparatus and the setting of experimental measurement was described. Then, systematic experiments of solitary waves shoaling over slopes were carried out to investigate influences of both the incident wave height and the slope on propagation and shoaling of solitary waves. The incident wave height of solitary waves measured in the present study was 0.06 m, 0.09 m and 0.12 m, and the slope was set with the gradient of 1:10, 1:15 and 1:20. Finally, the measured results were analyzed and discussed. The conclusion can be drawn that the maximum run-up of solitary waves and some breaking characteristics are related to the incident wave height and the gradient of the slope.

Index Terms—Shoaling, solitary waves, breaking, experiment, propagation.
