AbstractThe coastlines of the United States are susceptible to tsunamis, windstorms, and other types of flooding hazards. In the past few years, extreme events such as Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy resulted in the loss of lives and properties, costing the nation billions of dollars. Despite the elevated risk of extreme coastal events, the population in coastal communities has been steadily increasing. The main objective of the present study is to investigate the morphodynamics of flooding around near-coast structures. Experimental work has been undertaken to characterize the initiation and development of scour around an idealized building on an erodible berm, during the interaction of a solitary wave with the structure.
