Abstract
    The Eurotop Manual, based on the TAW guidelines, recognizes the reducing effect of a vertical wall or a berm on wave overtopping over an impermeable slope. Nevertheless, these reduction factors are only introduced in the formula for breaking waves. Furthermore, the berms for which reduction factors are proposed are mainly located below the SWL. In this paper, the reducing effect of a berm above SWL, a vertical wall and the combination of both are investigated. Reduction factors have been deducted, and are introduced in the existing overtopping formulae for an impermeable slope.
