• Flow Properties of Fully Nonlinear Model Equations for Surface Waves 

      Khorsand, Zahra (Doctoral thesis, 2017-11-03)
      The focus of this thesis is wave motion in shallow water. In particular, we investigate some properties of flows underneath long waves in shallow water and present the results in two parts. The first part contains a ...
    • On the shoaling of solitary waves in the KdV equation 

      Khorsand, Zahra; Kalisch, Henrik (Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      The waveheight change in surface waves with a sufficiently slow variation in depth is examined. Using a new formulation of the energy flux associated to waves modeled by the Korteweg-de Vries equation, a system of three ...
