Mechanical balance laws for two-dimensional Boussinesq systems


Most of the asymptotically derived Boussinesq systems of water wave theory for long waves of small amplitude fail to satisfy exact mechanical conservation laws for mass, momentum and energy. It is thus only fair to consider approximate conservation laws that hold in the context of these systems. Although such approximate mass, momentum and energy conservation laws can be derived, the question of a rigorous mathematical justification still remains unanswered. The aim of this paper is to justify the formally derived mechanical balance laws for weakly nonlinear and weakly dispersive water wave Boussinesq systems. In particular, two asymptotic expansions used for the formal and rigorous derivation of the Boussinesq systems and the same are employed for the derivation and rigorous justification of the balance laws. Numerical validation of the asymptotic orders of approximation is also presented.
