Question regarding overtopping.

Question regarding overtopping.

Question regarding overtopping.

Hi I am a final year coastal engineering student, undertaking my dissertation. I have carried out physical model experiments looking into how vertipools can mitigate overtopping. I am currently analysing my results but have a few questions regarding some surprising observations keen to pick anyone's brain regarding this.

RE: Question regarding overtopping.

I have no idea of what you are talking about yet. Go on...

RE: Question regarding overtopping.

And do you not have an advisor prof to discuss this with?

RE: Question regarding overtopping.

So ask the questions...

And explain what a vertipool is.

RE: Question regarding overtopping.

Vertipools are artificial rockpools that can be retrofitted to vertical sea walls, they are usually used in regards to increasing biodiversity and species richness in a costal region, but I am looking into how these artificial rock pools can be used to reduce the level of overtopping that occurs at sea walls. I have an advisor but am keen to get other coastal engineers opinion. My results show that for regular waves frequencies of 0.4 and 0.65 Hz produce the most overtopping but the lowest amount of overtopping occurs at 0.5 Hz. But I would assume that the higher the frequency of the wave the more energy the wave has so the more overtopping. Higher frequency waves have shorter wave lengths so that could be the reason. Anyone have any idea about this ?
