Abstract

A fully operational system to measure hazards resulting from waves overtopping the Zeebrugge rubble mound breakwater is discussed. The measurement site and the specific set-up used for wave overtopping measurements is also presented. The available link between measured forces and velocities on the one hand side and both overtopping volume/rates and incident wave conditions on the other side has been shown. It is suggested that more linking between measured forces and measured overtopping volumes/rates is necessary to give guidance on tolerable overtopping rates-volumes.
