Abstract:

Results of previous tests of monochromatic wave runup on smooth structure slopes were reanalyzed. The runup results for both breaking and nonbreaking waves are presented in a set of curves similar to but revised from those in the Shore Protection Manual SPM U.S. Army, Corps of Engineers, Coastal Engineering Research Center, 1977. The curves are for structure slopes fronted by horizontal and 1 on 10 bottom slopes. A flow chart is given to assist in choosing the proper figure and in interpreting the results when applied to untested bottom slopes i.e., bottom slopes flatter than 1 on 10. Also given are example problems and a curve for scale-effect corrections.
