Many dike failures have been ignited by damage due to erosion on the landward slopes. This paper investigates how grass covered slopes perform when being attacked by overtopping flow during storm surges. Based on observations during a number of simulator tests, damage is classified into three types 'head-cut', 'roll-up' and 'collapse' depending...

The landware slopes of sea dikes in the north of Vietnam are steep and solely constructed by soil covered with grass due to the budget constraints and also the out-of-date design guidelines.The resistance against erosion due to wave overtopping of several grass covered slopes were tested with the Wave Overtopping Simulator to show if a slope...

Recently, formulae have been derived for maximum flow depths and velocities on the crest and inner slope of dikes or levees at wave overtopping. Two independent physical model test programs in different wave flumes showed, however, a large difference in the results. The present paper clarifies this discrepancy and shows that the empirical...

The scope of this research is to find an empirical formula to describe the distribution of wave overtopping in the region behind the crest. A physical model was set up in which irregular waves were generated. In order to find a formula which adequately describes the test observations, the influence of several parameters has been analysed. The...

Medium height breakwaters are subjected to a considerable amount of overtopping. This implies the armour on the inner slope has to stable against overtopping waves. Existing equations do lack some basic understanding of the process of starting up movement of rock on the inner slopes. In case one relates the stability of the blocks on the inner...

A number of equations has been developed for calculation overtopping quantities over breakwaters, as well as equations to describe the stability of the inner slope. However, not all the water which overtops the outer boundary of the breakwater will reach the inner slope; part of the water is infiltrated in the crest. In this paper data are...
