Abstract

This paper describes a wide range of wave flume tests which main objective is the study waveshoaling and breaking over a set of different gentle slopes for several incident waves and thusto contribute for a better understand of the hydrodynamics of wave transformation and wavebreaking.For a bichromatic wave resulting from a combination of two regular waves with periodsT=1.1 and 1.5s, with the same wave height H=0.08m, are presented and discussed thefollowing results: free surface elevation at selected sections along the flume; significant waveheight, significant and average periods along the flume; particle velocity components atdifferent locations along the flume; average, maximum and minimum values of thelongitudinal component of the velocity along the flume; free surface elevation and velocitycomponents spectral analysis; two dimensional distribution of the three components of thevelocity; and longitudinal velocity component vertical profiles.
