Description
2D physical experiments, conducted in the wave flume of UGent, focus on wave interactions with low-crested sea dikes fronted by a shallow foreshore and mildly to steeply sloping beaches. Foreshore slopes of 1/20, 1/35, 1/50 and 1/80 were tested for a range of low to high energy wave conditions, a variation in wave steepness and two water levels. The main goal was to obtain a dataset in which the effects of the infragravity waves on the wave-structure interactions (i.e. wave overtopping and impact forces) can be studied. The tests included high spatial resolution surface elevation measurement tests, which is new for beaches including a dike in the inner surf zone. more
