Wave and Current Flows around Low-Crested Structures

Within the EU-funded project DELOS, 3D tests were performed in the 12.5 m x 9.7 m wave basin at Aalborg University, DK, with the aim of analyzing waves and currents around low-crested structures. This paper presents some experimental results on overtopping of low-crested structures both in a symmetrical layout, composed by two detached breakwaters with a gap in between, and in an oblique layout, composed by a single breakwater oblique to the beach. An original scheme for evaluating overtopping processes with varying structure submergence and wave attacks is provided and discussed in comparison with experimental mass balance.
