Abstract

Despite wave set up onshore low crested breakwaters may reveal quite important for the functional design of these structures, the experimental studies on this topic are up to now extremely limited, especially under random wave attacks. This contribution discusses results of large scale model tests the Authors conducted at the Grosser WellenKanal (GWK) of Hannover, Germany on an idealized 2D model of low crested/submerged breakwater. Analysis showed the importance of momentum release of breaking waves for submerged breakwaters and of the mass balance for low crested ones
