We derive local solutions of standing waves analytically. They show that the enclosed crest angle of the limiting standing wave is 90° and the limiting wave has a sharp corner only at a certain instant when the velocity in the whole region is zero. We have found that the crest of the limiting wave is not a singular point but a saddle point for pressure distribution.
