OVERTOPPING OF SOLITARY WAVES AT MODEL SEA DIKES

Erdal Ozhan, Ahmet Cevdet Yalcmer

Abstract


This paper discusses an analytical model for solitary wave overtopping at sea dikes. The model is based on the "weir flow analogy" of Kikkawa et al.(1968). Results of laboratory test on smooth and impermeable model dikes with angles of 45°, 60° and 90" are utilized in constructing the model. Results for solitary waves are compared with those for regular oscillatory waves for the case of vertical dike.

Keywords
