Abstract:This paper describes the new Wave Overtopping Manual(EurOtop) developed for EA / Defra, Rijkswaterstaat in the Netherlands and the German Coastal Engineering Research Council (KFKI). The new manual extends and updates the EA's Overtopping Manual (W178) (Besley, 1999), the Netherlands TAW manual (Van der Meer, 2002), and the German Die Küste (EAK, 2002). Considerable research since those publications prompted the production of an updated and extended manual combining European expertise. Research for Defra and the Environment Agency, carried out at HR Wallingford, has provided techniques for predicting the mean overtopping discharge, and the consequent flood volumes and drainage requirements, for a range of seawall types. In the Netherlands and Germany there has been continuous research into overtopping at embankments and dikes, and the recent European research project CLASH (de Rouck et al. 2005) has expanded understanding of overtopping and scale effects
