Abstract: In this paper, a hybrid finite-volume-finite-difference scheme for the solution of the one-dimensional form of the Nwogu's extended Boussinesq-Type equations was developed to investigate the breaking of a solitary wave propagating over a fringing reef system. The adoption of a high-order finite volume WENO schemes with HLL Riemann solver for advection terms as well as the third-order Runge-Kutta time-stepping scheme makes the present scheme shock-capturing. From the validation case, it is shown that the present shock-capturing model could simulate the shoreline movement and wave breaking as well as bore propagation very well. In order to comprehensively understand the hydrodynamic characteristics when a solitary wave travels over a fringing reef system, a parametric study has been carried out to analyze the interaction process under various conditions. Effects of different physical parameters on wave breaking are analyzed and the reflection, transmission and dissipation (RTD) coefficients are calculated based on the integration of kinetic and potential energies in different zones.
