The modified mild-slope equation. (English) Zbl 0843.76006
Summary: A modified version of the mild-slope equation is derived and its predictions of wave scattering by two-dimensional topography are compared with those of other equations and with experimental data. In particular, the modified mild-slope equation is shown to be capable of describing known scattering properties of singly and doubly periodic ripple beds, for which the mild-slope equation fails. The new equation compares favourably with other models of scattering which improve on the mild-slope equation, in that it is widely applicable and computationally cheap.
