Head-on collisions between two envelope solitary waves were investigated. The interesting result is that no phase shift or phase delay is detected after the head-on collision between two envelope solitary waves. At the same time, for the investigated amplitudes of the two envelope solitary wave, we found that the maximum amplitude during their collision is less than the sum of their initial amplitudes, but greater than the amplitude of either envelope solitary wave before collision.
