Abstract: A method is presented for the design of vertical-faced breakwaters for wave transmission by overtopping based on laboratory experiments of Goda, Takeda, and Moriya (1967) and Goda (1969). A step-by-step procedure is outlined, design curves are presented, and examples worked to illustrate the procedure.
