Long wave run-up on plane and “non-reflecting” slopes

Пелиновский Е. Н., Didenkulova I., Rodin A.

The long wave run-up on two types of slopes is investigated numerically within the
framework of nonlinear shallow water theory using the CLAWPACK software. One of the slopes
represents a plane slope widely used in the laboratory and numerical experiments; the second is the
so-called “non-reflecting” slope (h ∼ x4/3, where h is the basin depth and x is the distance from
the shoreline). In the case of very low wave amplitudes when there is no wave breaking, the run-up
height is greater on the non-reflecting beach than that on the plane slope. As the wave amplitude
increases, the breaking effects have the stronger impact in the case of non-reflecting beach and the
run-up height becomes smaller.
