The forced Korteweg-de Vries equation with Burgers' damping (fKdVB) on a periodic domain, which arises as a model for water waves in a shallow tank with forcing near resonance, is considered. A method for construction of asymptotic solutions is presented, valid in cases where dispersion and damping are small. Through variation of a detuning parameter, families of resonant solutions are obtained providing detailed insight into the resonant response character of the system and allowing for direct comparison with the experimental results of Chester and Bones (1968).
