EXPECTED DISCHARGE OP IRREGULAR WAVE OVERTOPPING

Senri Tsuruta, Yoshimi Goda

Abstract


An experiment was carried out on the overtopping of mechanically generated irregular waves over vertical walls. The experimental discharge was almost in agreement with the expected discharge which had been calculated with the wave height histogram and the data of regular wave overtopping based on the principle of linear summation. The expected values of overtopping discharge were calculated for various laboratory data, which had been represented in a unified form of non-dimensional quantities. The calculation has yielded two diagrams of expected overtopping discharge, one for the sea wall of vertical wall type and the othei for the sea wall covered with artificial concrete blocks.
