Abstract

The wave induced forces constitute the main load variable in the probabilistic design of vertical breakwaters and the evaluation of their probability distribution is necessary to achieve an optimal design of the structure without compromising reliability and without resulting in seriously overdesigned constructions. This paper discusses results of model tests performed in the CRF wave basin at HR Wallingford, in order to verify the influence of 3d effects on the shape and the parameters of wave forces distribution under impact conditions
