Estimating Runup on Beaches: A Review of the State of the Art
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH ALABAMA MOBILE
Pagination or Media Count:
The literature of estimating extreme values of runup on beaches is reviewed. The few available models for estimating beach runup agree with each other and the available data. However, the models are of limited engineering usefulness. Also, the available data are significantly limited. The use of Hunts Equation to scale beach runup should be carefully examined. Future research on beach runup is recommended and the importance of the engineering applications of such research is outlined. Keywords Beach waterlines, Coastal engineering, Wave runup.
