Abstract [en]

The features of velocity fields for the evolution of shoaling solitary wave, having a wave-height to water-depth ratio of 0.363 and propagating over a 1:3 sloping bottom, are investigated experimentally. A flow visualization technique using particle trajectory method and a high-speed particle image velocimetry (HSPIV) system employing a high-speed digital camera were used. This study mainly focuses on the occurrence of separated shear layer from the sloping bottom, evolved vortex structure, subsequent hydraulic jump, and curling jet of the backward breaking wave impinging upon the free surface of retreated flow during the run-down motion of the shoaling solitary wave.
