Formatted Abstract/Summary
Ocean waves transform both in terms of their heights as well as their shapes as they proceed ashore. These transformations result in a fall and a rise in the mean water level (MWL) respectively outside and inside of the surf zone, the so-called wave set-down and set-up. These changes in the MWL can be explained through variations in the wave radiation stress resulting from wave transformations. A precise prediction of the MWL, thus, requires an effective radiation stress formulation that successfully links the wave radiation stress to the wave properties such wave height and shape. However, existing radiation stress models often are unable to provide such a successful link, as their predicted MWL is often not in good agreement with measurements. This paper presents a new radiation stress formulation with the objective of improving wave setup predictions. The model is established based on the non-linear shallow water wave theory.
