Description: Technical Aid
Abstract: The results of previous tests on monochromatic wave runup on both smooth and rough slopes were reanalyzed. A method is presented for estimating wave runup on coastal structures with rough surfaces. This method is an extension of procedures described in the Shore Protection Manual (SPM) (U.S. Army, Corps of Engineers, Coastal Engineering Research Center, 1977). Where data were not presently available, the method uses wave runup on a smooth slope and then adjusts the value by a rough-slope runup correction factor to determine the wave runup on rough slopes. Flow charts are included to assist in choosing the proper procedures for determining wave runup on rough-slope structures with different types of permeability (i.e., embankment, rubble mounds with quarrystone or concrete armor units). Example problems are presented illustrating the methods and procedures.
