CLASSIFICATION OF WAVE LOADING ON MONOLITHIC COASTAL STRUCTURES

Andreas Kortenhaus, Hocine Oumeraci

Abstract


The paper uses the 'parameter map' which has been developed under PROVERBS (Probabilistic Design Tools for Vertical Breakwaters) in the frame of the ongoing MAST III programme of the European Union (EU contract no. MAS3- CT95-0041) to classify the wave loading on monolithic coastal structures and to identify the conditions leading to wave impacts. Data from four different hydraulic model tests have been used to verify and extend the parameter map. As a result an updated version is proposed for further design purposes.
