This study aims at demonstrating the capability of the immersed-body method to simulate wave–structure interactions using a non-linear finite-element model. In this approach, the Navier–Stokes equations are solved on an extended mesh covering the whole computational domain (i.e. fluids and structure). The structure is identified on the extended...

Within the framework of the CLASH-white spot tests, wave overtopping tests on a smooth sloping structure have been performed at UGent. 3 different geometries have been tested during these tests 1) simple smooth dike 2) simple smooth dike with a small vertical part (same crest level as geometry 1) 3) simple smooth dike with a small vertical part...

Based on a database of laboratory data on wave overtopping (around 10,000 tests) a neural network technique is used for producing a generic prediction method. In the first database (around 7,000 tests) the following white spots were detected where additional tests could improve the generic prediction method. This report deals with the laboratory...

This report details the results of the second phase of the additional white spot tests undertaken by the University of Edinburgh. Part A was undertaken by Aalborg University who investigated the effect of wave obliquity. Edinburgh were commissioned to undertake a series experiments to determine the relative difference in overtopping...

Tests have been performed with low steepness and reshaping breakwaters at Ghent University and Aalborg University respectively. The reshaping breakwater is a type of breakwater where the information on overtopping is very limited. The additional tests are described in the following four reports: .. D24 – Part A: Effect of obliqueness, short...

The main objective of Workpackage 5 is to use numerical simulation of wave overtopping in order to solve the problem of suspected scale effects. A second, related, objective is to improve existing codes in such a way as they are able to simulate wave overtopping in a reliable way. The final, single, objective is to numerically model long waves...

Old dikes are usually still constructed entirely from clay and since 1953 many much heavier dikes have been made from a core of sand with a covering. This construction puts heavier requirements on the covering, as it also does for grassland on a clay layer. These and other developments have led to the need for more insight into the strength of...

This report describes research to simplify and consolidate the prediction of wave action in reservoirs; to calculate wave induced discharges on embankments; and to extend work on blockwork and slabbing protection for dam faces presented by Herbert et.al (1995) in the companion report SR 345. The report should be used by engineers involved in the...

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...

Ferguson, H.A. (author)
The hydraulic model is playing an increasing part in the process of hydraulic designing and it seems even to have taken over the dominant position that experience and tradition had held for such a long time. But, however important the model tests have become, they are not the only means available to the designer, nor does he have to rely solely...

This paper deals with model tests conducted at the Delft Hydraulics Laboratory (DHL) and the River and Harbour Laboratory at the Technical University of Norway (RHL) for the design of the Europoort Breakwater. A series of tests with regular waves was conducted at the DHL from which the design of the breakwater was decided. The chosen design was...

It is described why, and to what extent the practicing engineer makes use of model tests in his design of rubble mound breakwaters. Furthermore an example is shown from practice illustrating the application of models for investigation of wave penetration into harbours. Especially the way in which model tests can confirm and supplement...

At the inauguration of two advanced wind-wave flumes in the Netherlands, three decades after BAGNOLD's pioneer work, and one decade after the Haringvliet sluice investigation and the joint Dutch-Danish investigation of the Hanstholm breakwaters, it seems appropriate to summarize current knowledge on wave shock phenomena. These may be classified...

This memorandum proposes a mathematical approach of the interactions between a non-viscous fluid with a free surface and an assembly of structures composed of shells, whether fixed or not, partially or totally immersed in the fluid. Some fundamental aspects of the problem, such as the effects of the free surface and of the mutual influence of...
