PROJECT CLOSING STATEMENT:


Extending and improving methods to design and analyse the overtopping performance of coastal defence structures. Phase I (completed 2002) interim report soon to be published will update the existing EA Design and Assessment Manual on Overtopping of Seawalls (1999 Manual)


SUMMARY OBJECTIVE:


In collaboration with a number of other European projects, to improve numerical models of wave overtopping of coastal defence structures and to develop design guidance as to which models are suitable for which circumstances.

KEY

CUSTOMER PURPOSE:


To improve the understanding of wave overtopping of coastal structure in order to assess the implications for the design, construction and maintenance of these structures.
