Abstract
    Large scale tests have been carried out to measure impacts of an overtopped wave on a storm wall at low freeboard coastal structures. Both a smooth dike slope and a vertical wall have been tested in a scale of 1/6. Impacts have been measured both with pressure and force transducers; the two systems provided similar results. Analysis is ongoing to find a correlation between the property of the incoming waves, few structure parameters, and the resulting design impact forces.
