Abstract

In this study, generation of two dimensional nonlinear waves is simulated numerically using boundary clement method. The present scheme is based on a Lagrangian description together with finite differencing of the time step. An algorithm to generate waves with any prescribed form is also implantec in the scheme. The numerical model was first verified by studying the case of finite amplitude waves impinging against a vertical wall. Time histories of evolution of a soliton running up on a sloping beach, as well as over a submerged obstacle are then presented. 1 Introduction Problems associated with generation, propagation and deformatio.i have been studied numerically by many researchers. Based on a mixed Eulerian- Lagrangian method, solitary wave interacting with a gentle slope, and wa
