Contrary to a breakwater outer slope, rear-slope revetment does not have to withstand breaking waves. However, generally, an equal dimensioned revetment is used on both the inner- and outer slope. Although with low-crested breakwaters severe overtopping occurs, the application of similarly sized armour on both sides still results in an over...

Wave overtopping in harbour areas is a fairly untreated topic in the context of flood risk analyses. Pragmatic approaches were undertaken to evaluate the possible influence of wave overtopping on the frequency of flooding. However no consensus was reached on how wave overtopping in a harbour area could be quantified. Therefore it is also...

This thesis discusses the breach initiation processes at the land-side slope of a dike, due to overflow and wave overtopping. To date still little is known about the actual failure process of land-side slope covers. Therefore, starting in 2007, numerous wave overtopping experiments have been executed in The Netherlands and Belgium using a wave...

In this thesis, a method was developed, with which the infragravity waves and morphological changes of a sandy foreshore are included in the calculation of the probability of dike failure due to wave overtopping. Constructing a natural foreshore in front of the dike can be an attractive and innovative method to decrease the failure probability....

This report presents a study of the Malecón Tradicional in front of ‘Centro de Havana’ and ‘Havana Vieja’ in the city Havana, Cuba. The objective is to develop a sea defence solution that prevents unacceptable flooding of the hinterland and damage of the Malecón seawall. Implementing the recommended solutions reduces the overtopping sufficiently...

There is a shift in the approach for designing coastal structures. In the past, dikes were designed on the probability of exceedance of an incoming wave during storm conditions. In the near future, the design criteria will be the probability of flooding of the hinterland. In order to determine this flooding probability, the strength of the dike...

The main goal of this project is to verify the numerical model SWASH when dealing with overtopping prediction by comparison of full scale measurement results to results of numerical model testing. For that purpose, the harbour in Zeebrugge (Belgium) has been considered; there, several storm events have been measured in a rubble mound breakwater...

Comparison of measured overtopping data with computations with Swash. The SWASH output discharges are smaller than the 5% lower limit of Eurotop and Neural Network predictions. Nevertheless, they were close values and they have the same order of magnitude, which is very important when comparing overtopping values. No refection analysis was done....

Pijpers, R. (author)
Hardly any flood defence system is a continuous dike system, since it is often interrupted by non-water retaining structures, as for example stairs, buildings, roads, fences and trees. Also larger hydraulic structures as floodgates and sluices are sometimes situated in the dike alignment. The transition between these different objects and the...

The main goal of this study is to determine the relation between very oblique wave attack and overtopping, and to accordingly adjust the formulae for oblique wave attack. The required knowledge to be able to read and understand this report is of a Bachelor in civil engineering level. All around the world different types of structures are built...

Krom, J.C. (author)
This thesis focuses on wave overtopping at rubble mound breakwaters with a non-reshaping berm. The research was aimed at gaining insight into the influence of a permeable berm on the overtopping behaviour. Moreover it was desired to validate existing prediction methods for the spatial distribution of overtopping for breakwaters with a non...

The safety of a large part of the Netherlands depends on sea dikes. Due to climate change, a sea level rise is predicted. Together with stronger storms and more wave attack, wave overtopping on the current dikes will increase. As a response, crest levels of the dikes need to be raised in order to meet the present regulations for wave overtopping...

Nowadays the protection of our country for high sea levels and heavy storms is daily news. The ComCoast project (COMbined functions in the COASTal defence zones) is originated by ten organisations out of five European countries bordering the North Sea coasts in order to develop innovative solutions for flood protection in coastal areas. Instead...

Hoe evenwichtsverlies bij golfoverslag ontstaat en welke krachten daarbij een rol spelen is onduidelijk. In dit rapport is onderzocht hoe groot de wrijvingskrachten op het binnentalud van een dijk zijn ten gevolge van het overslaande water. Omdat dit probleem niet toegankelijk is voor berekening, zijn een aantal proeven gedaan. Hiertoe is een...
