    The application of smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) to model the three-dimensional fluid-structure interaction for waves approaching a rubble mound breakwater is presented. The main aim is to model the armoured structure and to validate its response under the action of periodic waves. The complex geometry is represented by grooved cubic blocks such that the surrounding gaps within the breakwater seaward layer require a large number of particles to obtain a sufficiently detailed description of the flow. Using novel computer architecture solutions such as graphics processing units (GPUs), the fluid-structure interaction is modelled with SPH particles between armour blocks that are representative of the real structure. The open-source GPU code, DualSPHysics, enables the simulation of millions of particles required for the accurate simulation of the run-up on an armoured structure. SPH has been proven to be a suitable method for practical applications in coastal engineering. In the present work the run-up heights are computed and compared with empirical solutions and experimental data. Reasonable agreement is obtained for the run-up due to regular waves over a range of surf similarity numbers from 3.0 to 5.5.

    Physical model tests at small and large scales have been carried out to assess the influence of the model scale on the wave reflection of low-reflective quay walls consisting in prefabricated caissons with frontal openings and internal rubble mounds. Both monochromatic and random waves have been modeled. The experiments have been carried out in the small and large scale facilities at Laboratori d'Enginyeria Maritima of the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, in Barcelona. The approach described in Burcharth et al. (1999) for the treatment of scale effects for porous flows has been applied to scale down the nominal diameter of the grain material at small scale (1:33). The results with and without correction of scale effects have been compared with large scale ones (1:4). However, there is not plenty of literature on wave reflection of such kind of structure: Matteotti (1991) and Farad et al. (2012) carried out physical model tests for configurations similar to the one analyzed in the present work. Altomare et al. (2013a) applied an innovative data-driven modeling technique to analyze the relationship between wave reflection and hydraulic-geometrical parameter for random waves, basing the analysis on the results from small scale tests. A discussion on similarity or differences with the mentioned studies has been conducted confirming that the approach proposed by Burcharth et al. (1999) led to more accurate results. The main aim of the present work is to provide a reliable description of the behavior of such structure exposed to the wave actions, considered remarkable since a similar quay can be implemented as berthing structure inside the harbors. The paper underlines the importance of the treatment of the scale effects in such kind of modeling and the choice of a proper model scale. Finally a new equation to evaluate the reflection coefficient of such kind of structures is proposed. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Some small scale laboratory experiments were carried out in order to detect laboratory effects during the measurement of wave loads on rigid structures. Wave loads on rigid structures are divided into quasi static loads and impact loads. How will be demonstrated in this paper, the measure of quasi static loads is fairly easy and not affected by the sample frequency. Instead the measure of impact load is very difficult and some laboratory effects can strongly influence the results and lead at an unsafe estimation of the total load. Particularly, the use of different equipment and sensors can lead to significant differences in the results, so, for this reason, a comparison between load cells and pressure transducers recorded under the same wave attack were made. Impulsive wave loads are very fast and are characterized by a very short rise time (some milliseconds) and the results, also under regular waves attack, are very scattered. For that reasons a higher frequency sampler (up to 19.2 KHz) was used in order to study how the use of different sample frequencies can lead to very different results. In principle the utilization of a sample frequency that is too low can lead again to an unsafe estimation of the total load and affect the design process. Besides, due to the large scatter on the data, a deterministic approach is inadvisable and some repetitions of the same wave attack are needed in order to be sure to well characterize the studied phenomena. The obtained results show the probabilistic performance inherent to the impact loads phenomena as source of the scattered results.

    In this paper an evaluation of the morphodynamic response of different relatively common lightweight materials in small-scale physical models is presented. Results must serve to provide an overview of the various aspects likely to sensibly influence on sediments morphological response in small-scale tests and to determine the possible suitability of the low-density particles investigated for coastal modelling. Different granular materials, covering densities between 1150 kg/m(3) and 2650 kg/m(3) and median diameters from 0.07 mm to 1.5 mm have been selected to reproduce the experiments carried out in 1987 in the Grossen Wellen Kanal (Hannover, Germany). Tests have been performed at the Technical University of Bari (Bari, Italy) at scale 1:100 and at the Technical University of Catalonia (Barcelona, Spain) at scales ranging from 1:15 to 1:50, using irregular wave conditions and geometries based on Froude scaling. An analysis of the erosion and deposition volumes, the shoreline evolution and the beach profile slope has been done. Results show different mobility rates and beach profile morphodynamics depending on particles intrinsic characteristics, demonstrating that for lightweight materials not only settling velocity is paramount to determine particles suitability and morphodynamic response. Finally, a comparison between the morphological evolutions of the models and the prototype moving along the beach profile cross-section is presented.

    Within the European project 'Hydralab IV', HyRes we aim to improve the characterization of wave loads on rigid structures and the associated response by carrying out some laboratory experiments. Wave loads on rigid structures are divided into quasi static loads and impact loads. If the physics of quasi-static loads due to waves is well known, this cannot be said the same for wave impact loads. A comprehensive method to design maritime rigid structures under impact loads does not exist yet and the actual design method suggests avoiding scenarios where impact loads can take place. In the last decade, some laboratory experiments have been carried out; however some questions remain still unanswered. The use of different sensors can lead to significant changes in the results and an "exhaustive comparison" between dissimilar types of sensors has not been done yet. Even the magnitude of these forces can be underestimated during a laboratory test just for the choice of sample frequencies which are too low. This paper describes the experiments performed on a small scale flume at UPC on a scaled vertical breakwater in order to compare the results of pressure transducers and force load cells. Moreover, a high frequency sampler (up to 20 KHz) was used in order to understand the importance of sample frequency on the magnitude of the results. A simplified scenario has been set up in order to make the data analysis easier. © Coastal Education & Research Foundation 2013.

    Vertical walls are commonly used as berthing structures. However, conventional vertical quays may have serious technical and environmental problems, as they reflect almost all the energy of the incident waves, thus affecting operational conditions and structural strength. These drawbacks can be overcome by the use of low reflective structures, but for some instances no theoretical equations exist to determine the relationship between the reflection coefficient and parameters that affect the structural response. Therefore, this study tries to fill this gap by examining the wave reflection of an absorbing gravity wall by means of evolutionary polynomial regression, a hybrid evolutionary modelling paradigm that combines the best features of conventional numerical regression and genetic programming. The method implements a multi-modelling approach in which a multi-objective genetic algorithm is used to get optimal models in terms of parsimony of mathematical expressions and fitting to data. A database of physical laboratory observations is used to predict the reflection as a function of a set of variables that characterize wave conditions and structure features. The proposed modelling paradigm proved to be a useful tool for data analysis and is able to find feasible explicit models featured by an appreciable generalization performance.

    The paper discusses the influence of slope porosity and model scale for a low reflective vertical quay. Physical model tests were carried out in the small and large scale facilities at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, in Barcelona, with regular waves. Matteotti (1991) conducted experiments for similar kind of quay. The results for small scale agree with the Matteotti¿s ones, but the large scale tests lead to smaller reflection. This is due to the presence of scale effect at small scales. The authors applied the Burcharth et al (1999) approach to treat scale effects, as shown in the paper.

    The present paper reports the results of the application of the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method to model the wave run-up over an armour breakwater. The units that form the outer layer of the structure have been modelled in 3D to validate the response under wave attacks. The open-source GPU DualSPHysics code has been used because of its capability to simulate millions of particles required for an accurate modelling. The run-up heights have been computed and compared with empirical solutions. The results are in agreement with the ones obtained using literature formulae.

    The present paper reports the added-value of using SPH in the fluid-structure interaction occurring in the run-up and overtopping phenomena for a the rubble mound breakwater, where the seaward layer is made of grooved cubic blocks. The main goal is the study of the equivalent roughness of the outer layer, defined as the ratio of the maximum water level (run-up) on the armoured structure to the run-up on a smooth similar one. Run-up heights and overtopping rates have also been compared with empirical solutions. The complex geometry of the blocks and the surrounding gaps within breakwaters must be efficiently simulated to obtain a detailed description of the flow. Using novel computing solutions such as the new graphics processing unit GPU technology used in the DualSPHysics code (www.dual.sphysics.org), the fluid-structure interaction is being modelled with many armour blocks that are representative of the real structure. GPU computing enables the simulation of millions of particles leading to potentially better accuracy of the numerical run-up and overtopping estimates to obtain the value for the structure roughness.

    Neste trabalho é implementado e validado a geração de ondas longas num canal numérico de ondas. Funções de transferências utilizadas em canais físicos para gerar ondas longas de forma constante são aplicadas com sucesso a um canal numérico baseado no método PFEM. Resultados de ensaios em canal físico são utilizados para validar a geração de ondas “espúrias” no canal numérico aquando da utilização de uma função de transferência baseada na teoria linear de onda. Os resultados obtidos indicam que as teorias de geração implementadas permitem poder abordar de forma correta a simulação da interação entre ondas regulares longas e estruturas marítimas num canal numérico baseado no método PFEM.

    The semi-empirical methods are useful tools to understand the wave overtopping phenomena, but uncertainty remains on their applicability. It’s necessary to carry out campaign surveys or laboratory tests to support them. In this paper we apply the methods proposed in the European Overtopping Manual (2007) in order to assess the flows over a vertical breakwater, marking the need to calibrate those methodologies to take into account the peculiar geometry of the structural system. This was done by introducing appropriate correction factors. The results show an improved accuracy, among numerical results and physical ones.

    Physical model tests were carried out in order to improve the understanding about the hydrodynamic processes that take place around a LCS when it is under wave attack. In particular, the wave transmission and reflection coefficients as well as the spectrum transformation were analysed for both emerged and submerged structures. The results of the experiments indicated that there is a clear inverse proportionality between the transmission (Kt) and reflection (Kr) coefficients and the wave steepness sop. This trend is much more noticeable for emerged than for submerged structures. A comparison with some widely employed formulae was also made; in most of the cases these expressions underpredicted Kt and overpredicted Kr. Moreover, the spectral changes in the waves transmitted through the structure were analyzed, showing a shift of energy to higher frequency bands greater than that observed in previous works. It was also noted that the higher the sop, the more likely it is for the transmitted energy to be retained in the lower frequency bands.
