PERIODIC WAVES SHOALING IN WATERS OViR STEEPLY SLOPING BOTTOMS

Harihara Rama Ayyar

Abstract


The bottom bed slope plays a vital role m the shoaling and breaking of periodic waves. This study aims at the understanding of the effect of steep slopes (range steeper than 1 10) on the breaking point and the breaker trajectory and the point of impact. This range of slope is often met with in. the near-shore structures. Analytical investigations and model studies are outlined. The influence of slope on each of the significant breaker parameters is discussed.

Keywords
