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...

We investigate the vertical, wave averaged distributions of shear stresses and Eulerian flow in normally incident, shoaling and breaking waves. It is found that shear stresses are solely due to wave amplitude variations, which can be caused by shoaling, boundary layer dissipation and/or breaking wave dissipation. The resulting shear stress and...

The characteristic motion of water under breaking waves and the turbulence structure in the surf zone were investigated through detailed two-dimensional velocity measurements in a wave flume. Significant difference was found between the breaking processes in the outer and inner regions of the surf zone. The velocity field in each region consists...

It is well known (see Divoky et al., 1970, for a review) that on gentle slopes (slope S < 1:30, say) the wave height after breaking does not decay in proportion to the mean depth. The curve H/Hb vs h/hb is concave upwards (for plane bottom). The concavity increases with decreasing S and with increasing Ho/Lo (Nakamura et al., 1966). The often...

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...

Experimental research to the influence of the air pressure on the impact pressure cause by breaking waves. The research shows that there are three factors which load the structure during the breaking of waves: the water layer over the structure, the shock due to the impact of the water jet from breaking and the air pocket entrapped in the water...

Shock pressures of high intensity and short duration may occur during breaking of waves on coastal structures, slamming of ships, landing of seaplanes, and water entry of naval projectiles with flat nose. The phenomenon of shock pressures resulting from the impact between a solid and a liquid can better be described as a water hammer phenomenon...
