ANALYTCAL APPROACH ON WAVE OVERTOPPING ON LEVEES

Hiroyoshi Shi-igai, Tsugio Kono

Abstract


An analytical approach to evaluate the amount of overtopping for given conditions is studied in this paper Here, the wave overtopping is considered as a similar phenomenon to the flow over a weir changing the depth with respect to time The theoretical approaches used by many scholars have been mostly based on the dimensional analysis In this paper, however, another kind of approach is tried, which is rather deterministic, in order to get a general view of wave overtopping mechanism.
