Ahrens, Martha S. Heimbaugh Coastal Engineering Research Center DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY Waterways Experiment . The existing wave runup, bottom slope, and deep water Iribarren number data for regular and irregular waves on smooth, impermeable plane slopes were used as case studies. The comparison of results reveals that, the ANFIS model provides high accuracy and reliability for wave runup estimation, providing better predictions compared to other Cited by:

    Wave runup is an important issue that needs to be considered in the design of offshore structure such as wind turbine piles. Most of the recent proposed formulas for the estimation of wave runup height on vertical piles are based on the calculation of wave kinematics using an appropriate wave theory. In this study, regular and irregular wave runups were investigated based on . A New Method for the Prediction of Wave Runup on Vertical Piles Article in Coastal Engineering 98 April with Reads How we measure 'reads'.

    In the past this has been a difficult prediction to make, but now a new method for calculating the approximate upper limit of wave runup on riprap has been formulated. This method is based on laboratory data and is easy to apply through use of a recommended or an alternative formula.   An incident wave represents an irregular sea state with Gaussian spectrum. The asymptotic of probability functions in the range of large amplitudes for estimation of freak wave formation in the shore is studied. It is shown that the average runup height of waves with wide spectrum is higher than of waves with narrow by: 2.

Irregular wave run-up on beaches has been studied on the basis of laboratory and field data, which confirmed that long-term wave run-up corresponding to surf beat (or infragravity waves) appears in case of a sea bottom slope gentler than about 1/ No guidance for prediction of irregular wave runup is currently available in the Shore Protection Manual (SPM) (U.S.

Army, Corps of Engineers, Coastal Engineering Research Center, ) or other Corps publications. Summary of Irregular Wave Runup Prediction for Smooth Slopes: Hughes (b) recommended the following equations for prediction of irregular wave runup on smooth, impermeable slopes for nonbreaking (surging/collapsing) waves and breaking (plunging/spilling) waves as delineated by values of H mo Prediction of irregular wave runup book L p.

The Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) described herein provides a new formula for estimation of irregular wave runup on rough, impermeable slopes. The runup guidance.

Mean runup is simply the average runup (R) of all waves observed. The two percent wave runup (R 2%) is the runup that only two percent of the wave runup values observed will reach or exceed. Wave Runup Prediction Formulas.

Five different formulas for predicting wave runup were investigated in this study. Within the method's range of applicability it supersedes Section"Irregular Waves," of the Shore Protection Manual (U.S. Army, Corps of Engineers, Coastal Engineering Research Center, ); CETA "Prediction of Irregular Wave Runup" by John P.

Ahrens; and CETA "Revised Wave Runup Curves for Smooth Slopes" by Philip N. Stoa. Wave runup determines the extent over which waves act. Wave runup is therefore an important parameter to determine flood inundation extents from coastal storms. Cross-shore and longshore sediment transport are a function of the hydrodynamics on the beach and are therefore related to wave Cited by: 4.

Prediction of irregular wave overtopping (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: John P Ahrens; Coastal Engineering Research Center (U.S.). It is clarified that wave run-up is affected by the effects of the irregularity of incident waves and the slope configurations of structures.

A statistical model to estimate the run-up height from the incident wave properties is proposed considering 90 % confidence intervals. Prediction of irregular wave runup Ahrens, John.

Hunt () studied wave-driven runup on sloped impermeable structures and proposed a direct empirical relation between the wave runup of monochromatic waves and the Iribarren number: (7) R H 0 = Kξ or R = Kβ H 0 L 0 where K is a constant (equals to for average waves and for storm conditions) and ξ is the Iribarren number, which is commonly associated to the Author: Paula Gomes da Silva, Giovanni Coco, Roland Garnier, Antonio H.F.

Klein. Hunt () studied wave runup on smooth and rough bed conditions and proposed empirical relations for runup prediction based on the shape of breaking wave in surf zone (Eqs. (1), (2)). (1) R u H ≈ 3 (2) R u H = tan α (H L 0) ; R H = ξ where R u is the maximum vertical runup from still water level, L 0 is the deep water wave length [ L 0 = g 2 π T 2 ], α is Cited by: D Wave Runup D Overview.

Wave runup is the uprush of water from wave action on a shore barrier intercepting stillwater level. The extent of runup can vary greatly from wave to wave in storm conditions, so that a wide distribution of wave runup elevations provides the precise description.

for a specific situation. An incident wave represents an irregular sea state with Gaussian spectrum. The asymptotic of probability functions in the range of large amplitudes for estimation of freak wave formation in the shore is studied.

It is shown that average runup height of waves with wide spectrum is higher than that of waves with narrow by: 2. Very often for global and transoceanic events, due to the initial wave transformation, refraction, diffraction and multiple reflections from coastal topography and underwater bathymetry, the tsunami approaches the beach as a very long wave train, which can be considered as an irregular wave field.

The method is based on a re-analysis of an extensive laboratory measurement run-up data base of Mase [(), Random wave Cited by: 3.In addition, it is shown that non-linear deterministic wave prediction based on second-order NLSE as well as HOSM leads to a substantial improvement of the prediction quality for moderate and steep irregular wave trains in terms of individual waves and prediction distance, with the HOSM providing a high accuracy over a wider range of : Marco Klein, Matthias Dudek, Günther F.

Clauss, Sören Ehlers, Jasper Behrendt, Norbert Hoffmann, Mig.Large-scale physical model test measurements of wave run-up are compared with wave run-up prediction derived from the Shore Protection Manual (SPM).Noteworthy discrepancies between the results of these two methods have been identified that include substantial overestimation of wave run-up elevations using the SPM approach, and computation of roughness coefficient .
