[37] and checked the dependency of the incipient breaker depth index, the breaking-intensity parameter, and the nonlinearity parameter on the measured data.
However, as shown in Figure 8, the prediction of the incipient breaker depth index ([H.sub.b]/[h.sub.b]) shows difference in the results from the one-layer and two-layer models.
(3) In terms of the incipient breaker depth index ([H.sub.b]/[h.sub.b]), one-layer model showed problems with the prediction while two-layer model results fairly agreed with the experimental results.
