- In order to verify modified mild-slope equation models in a horizontal two-dimensional space, a hydraulic experiment is made for surface wave propagation over a circular shoal on which water depth varies substantially. A horizontal two-dimensional numerical model is also constructed based on the hyperbolic equations that have been developed from the modified mild-slope equation to account for the substantial depth variation. Comparison between experimental measurements and numerical results shows that the modified mild-slope equation model is capable of producing accurate results for wave propagation in a region where water depth varies substantially, while the conventional mild-slope equation model gives large errors as the mild-slope assumption is violated.
