  • Abstract As a solitary wave is usually used to characterize the behavior of a tsunami, a hydraulic experiment is set up for a detailed study of the associated celerity and particle trajectory. The size of the water tank of this experiment in this paper is 21m long, 0.5m width and 0.7m deep. Wave maker method used by Goring (1978) for simulating Solitary Waves is applied in the experiment of particle trajectories and mass transport.
    We also extend the particle trajectories theory to higher order that contains the non-linear terms.
    The method presented in this paper fixes the position of the camera, and the grid-point board is located in the center of the water tank, so that the particle and the two-dimensional grid surface coincide. Then, we analyze the particle trajectories within the grid with image processing techniques. This method not only save time of coordinate calibration, but also get a more accurate measurement.
    The water particle used in this paper has 1mm diameter, because it is difficult to locate the exact position of a large particle. Because of the small size in this experiment, we can get better results and the error is reduced.
    To compare with the experiment, the third-order Eulerian solution of Feton(1972) is transferred to the Lagrangian system in the present study to get the particle velocity.
    Then an integral with respect to time is used to obtain the trajectory. The accuracy of the theory is good, especially in the regime of small amplitude. For large wave amplitude in terms of the water depth, a higher order solution is suggested for the future study.
