• Wave Action on Coastal Structures Course

WAVE ACTION ON COASTAL STRUCTURES COURSE

This course will teach the theory and methods necessary for delivering alternative solutions to coastal problems. Attendees will gain a thorough understanding of a range of coastal structures, and improve their knowledge of wave characteristics. It will introduce the EurOtop manual and present established and new techniques to predict wave overtopping at seawalls, flood embankments, breakwaters and other shoreline structures.
Designed for those who need to be able to anticipate and/or predict the response of coastal structures to wave action, this course is aimed at graduate and chartered engineers, flood risk managers, consultants, contractors, owners and operators of coastal or reservoir/lake frontages, and post-graduate researchers.

  • TOPICS TO BE COVERED

    • An introduction to the main types of structure.
    • Use simple methods to estimate wave loads and how to predict wave overtopping, crest level calculation, and armour size determination.
    • An introduction to the EurOtop manual and the techniques (both established and new) used to predict wave overtopping at shoreline structures.
    • Gain a theoretical understanding of the key issues in coastal engineering.
    • Definition of key structural and hydraulic parameters, discussion of the types of prediction methods, and guidance on how the results should be interpreted.
    • The main methods available for predicting overtopping (desk calculations; use of BayonetGPE tool; PC Overtopping).

    Example calculations and case studies are used to illustrate key methods along with iterative or explicit approaches to setting a crest level.

  • Instructor

    Dr. Tim Pullen

    Lead Author & Editor for the EurOtop Manual

    Tim Pullen has over 20 years’ experience in coastal and maritime engineering. He created the course material from his wide range of experience in design and development of studies gained during several major research and consultancy projects. He has a high level of experience in physical modelling as project specialist for a number of coastal defence projects.

  • How Will This COURSE Benefit My Career?

    At the end of the course, you will:

    • Be aware of the types and breadth of coastal structures in use
    • Be familiar with key coastal processes affecting the design of coastal structures, and the most recent guidance on wave over topping
    • Have had hands-on experience of key input parameters, application of prediction tools, and understand levels of confidence that can be ascribed to such predictions
    • Understand the significance of different sources of guidance, including recent or future research results
    • Be able to devise alternative solutions with confidence by understanding key coastal process, the over topping process, and by their experience of the main prediction methods
