Numerical Simulation of Hydraulic Overflow Pressure Acting on Structures behind the Seawall

The 2D numerical wave flume based on VOF method, called CADMAS-SURF, was applied to hydraulic pressures acting on the structures because of the flooded water. The validity of this model is verified due to the comparison with experimental data. Then the numerical simulation of the hydraulic pressure was carried out. The numerical results suggested the importance of detached breakwaters to decrease the amount of flooded water and hydraulic pressures.
