The present study further examines two recent semi-analytic methods, a reduced order of nonlinear differential transformation method (also called RDTM) and differential transformation method along with Pade approximation to discuss Jaulent–Miodek and coupled Whitham–Broer–Kaup equations. The basic ideas of these methods are briefly introduced and performance of the proposed methods for above mentioned equations is evaluated via comparing with exact solution. The results illustrate that the so-called DTM method, unlike RDTM, due to the presence of secular terms (similar to perturbation method), cannot be found practical for nonlinear partial differential equations (particularly in Acoustic and Wave propagation problems) even through utilizing Pade approximation; meanwhile, RDTM method, despite its simplicity and rapid convergence, assured a significant accuracy and great agreement, and thus it is fair to say that nonlinear problems together with Acoustic application which cannot be solved via Analytical methods, can be studied with reduced order of nonlinear differential transformation method.
