Abstract

In this study, the moving velocitiy of precursor solitons, of the flow in depressed region, and of the zero-crossing of the trailing wavetrain relative to the moving disturbance for single-layer flow over topography were theorecticaly determined in terms of the mass and energy conservation theorems, andwere examined with numerical calculations showing good agreement with theoretical results.

Key words
