WAVE OVERTOPPING RATE AND REFLECTION COEFFICIENT FOR OBLIQUELY INCIDENT WAVES

Yoichi Moriya, Masaru Mizuguchi

Abstract


Recently, wave overtopping over a vertical wall for normal incidence were treated analytically on the basis of the wave energy flux concept (Mizuguchi, 1993) . In this study, the Mizuguchi's model for normal incidence is extended to oblique incidence. Incident wave angle effect on the wave overtopping rate is investigated. Validity of the extended model is checked experimentally. Satisfactory agreement between the extended model and the experimental results was found for the wave overtopping rate.
