The Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN described herein provides empirical equations to estimate irregular wave forces and overturning moments on thin, vertical walls extending from the seafloor and having a top elevation that is below the still-water level. In this situation, the majority of the wave crest passes over the vertical wall. A worked example illustrates application of the empirical equations.
