NEW METHODS TO EVALUATE WAVE RUN-UP HEIGHT AND WAVE OVERTOPPING RATE

Yoshimichi Yamamoto, Kiyoshi Horikawa

Abstract


Recently, waterfront development and the mean sea level rise due to greenhouse effect have been noticed, and it has become important to develop a practical method to calculate wave run-up height or wave overtopping rate. This paper presents new methods for calculating the wave run-up height on and the wave overtopping rate over a seawall located on a complicated bottom profile of sea coast. The proposed methods were tested both in the laboratory and in the field. The predicted results coincide well with the available data.

Keywords
