ACTION OF NON-LINEAR WAVES AT A SOLID WALL

Mohamed S. Nasser, John A. McCorquodale

Abstract


A one-dimensional finite difference model is developed to simulate the action of long non-linear shallow water waves at a solid barrier. A damping parameter is introduced to account for the centrifugal effects in the incident wave. A stability criterion for At/Ax is suggested. The numerical predictions of reflection and run-up compare satisfactorily with experimental results.
