WAVE RUNUP AND OVERTOPPING ON COASTAL STRUCTURES

J.P. de Waal, J.W. van der Meer

Abstract


Delft Hydraulics has recently performed various applied research studies in physical scale models on wave runup and overtopping on various structures. Runup has extensively been measured on rock slopes. Runup and overtopping have been measured on smooth slopes, including the influence of berms, roughness on the slope, shallow water, short crested waves and oblique (long and short crested) waves. The paper gives an overall view of the final results, such as design formulas and design graphs.
