    In this paper we discuss the comparison of numerical simulations of solitary waves, reflected from a rigid wall under an angle, using the HAWASSI-VBM (Hamiltonian Wave-Ship-Structure Interaction – Variational Boussinesq Model) and the SWASH (Simulating Waves ‘till Shore) model. We reconstruct the experiment of Yeh et al (2011) to investigate the amplification of the Mach stem phenomenon. In the simulation, some solitary waves from the solution of Kadomtsev-Petviashivili (KP) equation with the angle of 300 is chosen as the incident wave. We compare the results of numerical simulation with the laboratory experiment of Yeh et al. Based on this comparison, results of numerical simulation from both wave models show a quite good agreement with the experiment data.
