On the wave-front shape and the advancing of the wetting front of a dam-break flood over an inclined plane of arbitrary bottom slope

Abstract

In this note we consider the analysis of the wave-front shape resulting from the sudden release of a finite volume of water over an inclined plane bed of arbitrary bottom slope. To that end we use the one-dimensional turbulent shallow water equations with a constant friction factor. We propose an asymptotic analytical solution for the height and velocity in… (More)
