Abstract

Overtopping and rear slope stability of reshaping and non-reshaping berm breakwaters have been studied in a wave flume. A total of 695 tests have been performed to cover the influence of crest freeboard, crest width, berm width, berm elevation, stone size and sea state. Formula for average overtopping discharge that includes these parameters has been derived. The measurements show good correlation between average overtopping discharge and rear slope damage.
