WAVE RUN-UP ON REVETMENTS WITH COMPOSITE SLOPES

Zeya Wang, Joachim Grune

Abstract


The paper deals with wave run-up on revetments and seadykes with composite slopes. The presented data were obtained from large scale laboratory tests with different wave climate characteristics in the " Large Wave Channel " ( GWK ) at Hannover, Germany. The results are discussed with respect to slope angle transformation mode to be used in the well-known HUNT-formula.
