THE EXACT SOLUTION OF THE HIGHEST WAVE DERIVED FROM A UNIVERSAL WAVE MODEL

Yang Yih Chen, Frederick L.W. Tang

Abstract


The solitary wave is first established in this paper by extending the series solution of periodic gravity wave as the wavelength approaches to infinite. Then, the highest gravity wave of permanent type in finite depth of water is immediately analyzed. The maximum ratio of wave height to water depth is obtained as 0.85465')..., and the angle at the crest for the considered highest wave is estimated to be 90°.
