The amount of wave overtopping at coastal structures such as vertical caisson breakwaters is strongly dependent on the angle of wave attack. The reducing effects of oblique waves on wave overtopping compared to perpendicular wave attack has been studied by means of three-dimensional wave basin tests. In these physical model tests the caisson...

In the current breakwater design process, not all feasible concepts can be explored due to time constraints. However, designers are also influenced by breakwaters constructed near, or at the same location as their breakwater project. But also conservative assumptions influence the breakwater design process, for instance, regarding the wave...

The work presented will investigate the usage of Oscillating Water Columns (OWC) in Coastal Structures to understand the functionality requirements and the viability of installing these devices in caisson breakwaters. The main focus is put on the efficiency of the design, to achieve optimum results and to avoid possible failure of the structure....

The sliding force was a contributing factor to the displacement of caissons from the Kamaishi composite breakwater during the Great East Japan tsunami 2011 (Arikawa et al., 2012). The pressure reduction on the landward wall of the caisson due to non-aeration of the overflowing jet gives rise to an additional horizontal force which increases the...

A new concept for wave energy conversion is examined as a proof of concept for generating electricity in a moderate wave climate while being integrated in a caisson breakwater. Physical model testing is performed to analyse the preliminary efficiency of the device and to identify areas of improvement. The resulting device is calculated for two...

Through the increasing draught of large vessels the need for breakwaters at greater depths becomes more and more important. In this respect vertical breakwaters may be the best alternative because of the considerable savings in construction time as well as the lower construction and maintenance costs. Therefore a lot of research is performed...
