    Low-crested breakwaters or dams may provide some sheltering of flood defence structures like dikes or seawalls. The area around such dams and flood defences very often has a complex geometry. This paper describes the process of transformation of extreme wave boundary conditions in front of such structures to the flood defence structures. Methods to calculate the required crest height for various types of complicated sea walls are given, based on allowable overtopping.
