Abstract : The numerical method developed by Wallace and Wonderley for calculating the deformation of a solitary wave moving onto a steep seawall was extended to beach slopes as small as 9 deg. The calculated results show that the existing dipole flow model does not adequately represent the wave deformation for beach slopes this small. Fundamental changes in the mathematical model appear to be required for the same accuracy with which the dipole model represents undeformed solitary waves. (Author)
