title = "Comparative study on breaking wave forces on vertical walls with cantilever surfaces",

abstract = "Physical experiments (at a scale of 1/20) are carried out using two different models: a vertical wall with cantilevering slab and a simple vertical wall. Tests are conducted for a range of values of water depth, wave period and wave height. The largest peak pressures were recorded at the SWL (82 * ρghs) on the vertical part and at the fixed corner of the cantilever slab (90 * ρghs). Pressure measurements and derived force calculations on the simple vertical wall were used to evaluate the existing prediction formulas. A significant effect of the cantilevering part is observed on the total horizontal force and overturning moment of a simple vertical wall. This is due to secondary impact occurring on the overhanging part by a jet climbing on the vertical part.",
