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 o f arbitrary bottom slope. To that end we use the one-dimensional turbulent shallow wat er equations with a constant friction factor. We propose an asymptotic analytical solut i n for the height and velocity in the wave tip region based on the velocity of the wetting front and its temporal derivatives, in a similar fashion as Whitham (1955).
