CHARACTERISTICS OF A SOLITARY WAVE BREAKING CAUSED BY A SUBMERGED OBSTACLE

Masanori Hara, Takashi Yasuda, Yukio Sakakibara

Abstract


This study aims to make quantitatively clear the breaking wave characteristics of a solitary wave incident to a submerged obstacle by performing intensive numerical simulations using a boundary integral method. The incident critical wave height, the break point and the breaker height are formulated through regression analyses based on the simulated results and are shown to be determined uniquly by using the regression equations.
