    This document reports a following up of the EU-funded research project DURCWAVE (amending the Design criteria of URban defences in LECZs through Composite-modelling of WAVE overtopping under climate change scenarios).
    The role of FHR was an external advisor for the project. FHR exchanged the knowledge on overtopping design criteria and coastal management policy with Dr. Altomare (PI of the research project) through some communications including some workshops.
    Dr. Altomare hired a composite-modelling approach, consisting of both physical and numerical modelling. Physical model tests were carried out in two different wave flume facilities in UPC, meanwhile the numerical modelling using mesh-free DualSPHysics model was performed. On top, the EPR data-driven technique was also used to find new correlations between wave impacts and overtopping flows.
    As a result, Dr. Altomare published 14 articles (8 are collaboration with FHR) – at the moment of mid-March 2021. Through this following up project, FHR obtained further knowledge on wave overtopping processes, more specifically directional spreading effect on coastal dikes in shallow foreshores and overtopping flow characteristics on a dike in shallow foreshores. These knowledge are very relevant to the work of FHR, especially for the risk assessment of the coasts.
