Abstract : The investigation of the shoreward travel of a bore into water at rest is extended to beaches of non-uniform slope. It is shown that the shore ingularity established in the earlier invetigaion furnishes again an approximate solution. The shape of the beach, like the shape of the wave forming the bore, is found to influence the bore development close to the shore almost only through the basic velocity scale of the bore. (Author)
