PREDICTION OF WAVE RUNUP AND RIPRAP STABILITY

Nobuhisa Kobayashi, Jeffrey H. Greenwalk

Abstract


A numerical model has been developed to predict the wave motion on a rough impermeable slope and the hydraulic stability and sliding motion of armor units under the action of a specified normally incident wave train. The developed numerical model has been compared with riprap test results to calibrate and verify the model.
