RBREAK2 is an advanced numerical model for calculating runup and overtopping on rough slopes of arbitrary geometry. Assessing the runup and overtopping potential of proposed or existing revetments is essential to design of the revetment or design of drainage systems behind the structure, or assessing flood and damage potential critical to an economic evaluation of the structure. Typically, runup and overtopping estimates are made based on physical models or empirical equations, either of which has limitations. Common prototype conditions such as compound slopes, offshore bars, or varying bottom roughness are particularly difficult for estimating runup and overtopping.
