Abstract

This paper describes an experimental study carried out in a laboratory wave flume to quantify the influence of the relative water depth on the wave run-up over a smooth sloping structure. The run-up measurements were carried out over practically important ranges of the wave steepness, the relative water depth and the structure slope. The results indicate an increase in the wave run-up at shallow depths compared to deep water conditions. This increase is up to about 20% for plunging breakers and is as much as 65% for surging breakers.
