AbstractA nonlinear numerical model has been formulated to study the propagation of a monochromatic surface wave. The model is formulated through the vertical integration of the continuity equation and the equations of motion. This model is investigated for wave propagation, velocity distribution, energy propagation and varying Courant, Friedrichs and Lewy's (CFL) condition. The applicability of this model for both shallow and deep-water wave is also examined. The results and analyses are shown in details. The results obtained from the model are compared with the Stokes third order wave theory and with the relevant experimental data.
