Abstract

This paper contributes to the diffraction of a solitary wave by a cylinder, governed by the Boussinesq eq. The Spectrum Method is used to transform 2·D eqs.into a set of 1·D eqs., which is solved by F. D. M. The example given in the paper shows that this method is both accurate and cost effective.
