A new semianalytical technique optimal homology asymptotic method (OHAM) is introduced for deriving approximate solution of the homogeneous and nonhomogeneous nonlinear Damped Generalized Regularized Long-Wave (DGRLW) equation. We tested numerical examples designed to confine the features of the proposed scheme. We drew 3D and 2D images of the DGRLW equations and the results are compared with that of variational iteration method (VIM). Results reveal that OHAM is operative and very easy to use.
