SHORT TERM WAVE OVERTOPPING RATE OF BLOCK ARMORED SEAWALL

Tsunehiro Sekimoto, Hiroshi Kunisu, Tsuyoshi Yamazaki

Abstract


The characteristics of short term over topping rate for a deepsea block armored seawall are investigated experimentally. Two series of experiments were conducted. One is a series that seawall has low crown height and a wave grouping effect is investigated. Another experiment is a series that it has a high crown height and slope effect of armor unit is studied. From these experiments, we have to consider the short term wave overtopping rate for the design of drainage facilities of deepsea structure such as an artificial island.
