dc.descriptionTechnical note-
dc.descriptionPURPOSE: The Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) described herein provides empirical equations for estimating shear stresses on the land-side slope of earthen levees resulting from the combination of storm surge steady overflow and unsteady overtopping of irregular waves. A worked example provides guidance on application of the empirical equations.-
