|Abstract:||In the design of coastal structures it is often necessary to calculate the levels to which waves will run-up on the front face of the structure.
This report summarises the results of a series of model tests conducted with random waves to measure the wave run-up and reflection performance of steep smooth and armoured slopes. These tests follow a literature review, published separately, on wave run-up on smooth and armoured slopes as used in the construction of breakwaters, seawalls and revetments. The results of this study are intended to assist those designing, constructing or maintaining such structures.|
