Accreditated by

This one-day course, for consultants, specialist owners and specialist contractors, is based on guidance from the European PROVERBS project, significantly clarified and extended by recent Coastal Engineering journal papers by Dr Cuomo and Professor Allsop. Those new methods will form the key part of the course notes.

Summary

Wave loads on vertical breakwaters and seawalls have historically been very difficult to predict with confidence. This is compounded by major uncertainties over the importance, and occurrence, of impulsive loads rather than pulsating (or quasi-static) wave loads. Recent research in the UK, Europe and with collaborators in Japan has led to substantial clarification of the prediction of such loads.
