THE EFFECT OF WAVE ENERGY SPECTRA ON WAVE RUN-UP

J.H. van Oorschot, K. d'Angremond

Abstract


Previous investigations carried out "by the Delft Hydraulics laboratory have shown the necessity of applying irregular waves m studies on wave run-up. The installation of a wave generator driven "by hydraulic actuators has created the possibility of producing irregular waves with arbitrary wave spectra. Investigations performed with this type of wave generator show the influence of the shape of the energy spectrum on the wave run-up on smooth straight slopes of 1:4 and 1:6. The results are compared with run-up figures derived from experiments with wind generated waves and with monochromatic waves.
