EXPERIMENTS ON A NON-WAVE OVERTOPPING TYPE OF SEAWALL

Keisuke Marukami, I. Irie, Y. Kamikubo

Abstract


A new type of seawall is proposed in this study. The seawall has a deep circular arc cross section and allows no wave overtopping any more. The critical crest elevation of the seawall, which defined as the minimum crest elevation on which the wave overtopping dose not occur at all, is investigated through the wave tank experiments. The wave pressures and wave forces acting on the seawall are also measured, and the characteristics of the wave pressure distribution and wave forces are examined.

Keywords
