Abstract: Regression analysis is used to develop equations that are easy to use but reasonably accurate in calculating overtopping rates for seawalls. Data are taken from physical model studies and include a wide range of seawall types and wave conditions. The seawalls are divided into seven basic groups and regression coefficients are determined for each group. The basic regression model estimates dimensional overtopping and provides a simple means of comparing performance of different seawall designs. An improved model also is developed that provides improved correlation between a dimensionless overtopping variable and the collected data.
