Long surface gravity waves of finite amplitude in uniform shear flows are considered by using an asymptotic model derived under the assumption that the aspect ratio between wavelength and water depth is small. Since its derivation requires no assumption on wave amplitude, the model can be used to describe arbitrary amplitude waves. It is shown that the simple model captures the interesting features of strongly nonlinear solitary waves observed in previous numerical solutions. When compared with… CONTINUE READING
