Abstract: This article extends the theory of roll-waves due to Dressler (1949) to a thin layer of mud modeled as a power law fluid. Roll-waves are periodic bores moving at a constant velocity down an incline. Basic equations for long waves are derived. Particular discussions are given on the condition for the critical flow.
