Generally the foundations of offshore wind turbines are steel truss structures which are exposed to wave slamming forces due to breaking waves, typically plunging breaking waves in shallow water. Calculations show that the forces from the plunging breaking waves are governing the design responses of the structure and the foundations. However,...

Much research has been done on the stability of stones in breaking waves, but up to now, most of these studies were based on experiments with slopes varying from 1: 1 to 1:7. The stability of stones on mild slopes, slopes not steeper than 1: 10, has not yet been researched very extensively. Applications of mild slopes in practice are for example...

In this report we describe the development and calibration of a model which predicts the vertical distribution of the horizontal velocities induced by waves, the so-called undertow. Location of interest is the nearshore region where the flow is induced by both breaking and non-breaking waves. The model consists out of three modules. The first...

Part I Probabilistic aspects. An overview is given of literature on the statistics of breaking waves in open ocean. New approximations of the fraction of breaking waves and the distribution of breaking wave heights are presented and compared with results found in literature. Part II Observed breaking wave statistics. This part is dedicated to...

Het rapport "Literatuuronderzoek bij een hoog voorland" bevat een systematische weergave van de bestaande kennis van het gedrag van golven in een bepaalde ondiepte-situatie. Die situatie betreft een tamelijk vlak, relatief hoog liggend voorland voor een kust met daar boven een geringe waterdiepte, en wel het gebied vanaf de lijn waar de golven...
