Figure 15. Dimensionless monoclinal and steady state rating curves for
depth ratios ranging between 2 and 50.
Figure 16 gives E as a function of y for selected values of yr. The maximum E increases with
yr and moves from near the midpoint of the profile toward the leading edge. Conversely,
Figure 17 gives E as a function of yr for selected values of y . At small yr the largest E is
located near the midpoint of the profile. As yr increases E approaches a constant starting at
the midpoint of the profile and progressing toward the leading edge. At large depth ratios
E is inversely proportional to y , increasing toward the leading edge.

nal wave profile for selected depth ratios. Panel b is an expanded view of the shaded
area in panel a.
