    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 ...
  • Influence of convex and concave curvatures in a coastal dike line on wave run-up 

    Subramaniam, Suba Periyal; Scheres, Babette; Schilling, Malte; Liebisch, Sven; kerpen, Nils B.; Schlurmann, Torstern; Altomare, Corrado; Schüttrumpf, Holger (2019-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Due to climatic change and the increased usage of coastal areas, there is an increasing risk of dike failures along the coasts worldwide. Wave run-up plays a key role in the planning and design of a coastal structure. ...
  • Numerical modelling of coastal defences using the smoothed particle hydrodynamic method 

    Crespo, Alejandro; Altomare, Corrado; Rogers, Benedict D.; Dominguez, Jose; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    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 ...
  • Overtopping formula for vertical tiers-headed breakwaters 

    Altomare, Corrado; Damiani, Leonardo; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    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. ...
  • Wave reflection on dissipative quay walls: an experimental study 

    Altomare, Corrado; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim (2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    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, ...
