Due to ongoing climate change, overtopping risk is increasing. In order to have effective countermeasures, it is useful to understand overtopping processes in details. In this study overtopping flow on a dike with gentle and shallow foreshores are investigated using a non-hydrostatic wave-flow model, SWASH (an acronym of Simulating WAves till...

Three open source wave models are applied in 2DV to reproduce a large-scale wave flume experiment of bichromatic wave transformations over a steep-sloped dike with a mildly-sloped and very shallow foreshore: (i) the Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations solver interFoam of OpenFOAM® (OF), (ii) the weakly compressible smoothed particle...

In this paper, a Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations solver, interFoam of OpenFOAM®, is validated for wave interactions with a dike, including a promenade and vertical wall, on a shallow foreshore. Such a coastal defence system is comprised of both an impermeable dike and a beach in front of it, forming the shallow foreshore...

The study of wave impact physics and magnitudes are key for the design of vertical coastal hydraulic structures. This research addresses the study of standing wave impacts on vertical coastal hydraulic structures with a relatively short horizontal overhang, which is especially relevant for structures such as lock gates, sluice gates, dewatering...

Mooring system is one of the critical parts of a floating system in an offshore environment. It can be compromised by the wave drift force that exerts a considerable amount of load due to its non-linear properties. Due to the increase in complexity of the analysis, a numerical method is often opted to conduct the simulation of the wave drift...

During the design process of the new sea lock in IJmuiden the design wave conditions were described by a bimodal wave spectrum. With a spectral calculation method it was observed that a small low frequency component leaded to a large influence in the force spectrum. This observation served as the starting point for this thesis, where different...

In this paper the impact process and mechanism of overtopping flow on a vertical wall on a dike crest are investigated by means of a series of physical model tests. A double-peaked force was recognized in a time series of an overtoping flow. Four stages were summarized for the whole overtopping flow impact process. An empirical relationship...

Wide crested dike can reduce the kinetic energy of the overtopping wave and make the overtopping wave to flow back to the seaside. If a coastal town were built on or near a dike, the overtopping wave running on the dike crest generates the force which can affect the buildings located in its path. However, quantifying the hydrodynamic load on the...

In this book, different types of breakwaters are introduced and their historical development is described in order to understand the advantages and disadvantages associated with each type of breakwater. The failures of breakwaters are then discussed to demonstrate crucial points in their stability design. Finally, the design methods used for...

De Jong, R. (author)
Induced by a rapid increase of ship sizes in the last decades, the demand for deeper waterways emerged and so did the demand for higher breakwaters. The scale of land reclamation projects has also increased concomitantly. This means they extend such projects now further offshore into deeper water, requiring higher watersheds. In this deeper...

Final report and appendices of the European project Proverbs on tools for the design of vertical breakwaters (caisson type breakwaters) and similar hydraulic structures in the coastal zone. It includes the loads (waves) as well as the strength of the structure (geotechnial aspects, structural aspects)

Recently, interest in vertical breakwaters has grown. The development of ports from natural small harbours to artificial large harbours facing the outer sea has demanded the construction of breakwaters in rougher seas. The vertical breakwater could play a role of importance in this development. To obtain general guidelines for the design of...

In Europe the interest in and the importance of vertical breakwaters is growing. A central point is the optimal geometry, e.g. the width and height of the breakwater caisson chosen such that the total costs over the lifetime of the structure are minimized. Probabilistic design tools provide several methods to determine the probability of failure...

Vertical breakwaters are used in the design of harbours to create a protective area. This protective area can be an approach channel or the harbour itself. Because of large new projects, such as Maasvlakte 11 in the Netherlands and the increasing sizes of ships, many harbours have to be placed in deep water. Deep water requires higher...

The need for coastal structures, such as breakwaters, at great water depths is rapidly increasing as a result ofthe increasing draught of large vessels and off-shore land reclamations which can, for instance, be used for the benefit of the expansion of harbours and related industrial activities. In water depths greater than approximately 10 m...

Goda, Y. (author)
The historical development of upright breakwaters in Japan is briefly reviewed as an introduction. Various wave pressure formulas for vertical walls are discussed, and then the design formulas currently employed in Japan are presented with an example of calculation. Several design factors are also discussed.

Series of measurements with irregular waves were undertaken for model seawalls of vertical walls with and without protection by concrete block mounds. Experimental data were compared and supplemented with theoretical calculations by the combination of the author's random wave breaking model in shallow waters and the weir type overflow model. The...

The scouring profile of a bottom consisting of movable material as this is formed in front of a vertical wall under influence of the standing wave against this wall is discussed. The form of this profile is different for coarse and fine material. In the case of fine material this material is moved in suspension by the mass transport currents...
