Abstract: This paper investigates surge waves generated by landslides in reservoirs. The Navier-Stokes equations with complete viscous conditions at the free surface are solved numerically for the pressure and velocity field. The numerical simulation of various landslide patterns reveals significant nonlinearity and transient behavior of the fluid motion during the wave generation.
