PRE-CONFERENCE TRAINING COURSE: “EUROTOP AND SEADIKE DESIGN” WIL BE HELD FROM 23-24 SEPT, 2019

The 10th International Conference on Asian and Pacific Coasts (APAC2019) will include the short course to enhance your learning experience. These in-depth, two day course is taught by well-known experts in the wave overtopping field and cover topics of "EUROTOP AND SEADIKE DESIGN".

PRE-CONFERENCE TRAINING COURSE:

“EUROTOP AND SEADIKE DESIGN”

Lecturer:       Prof. Schüttrumpf Holger, RWTH Aachen University, Germany.

Schedule:     23-24 Sept, 2019 at Thuyloi University, Hanoi, Vietnam

Contents:

  • Introduction
  • Water levels and wave conditions
  • Tolerable discharges
  • Prediction of overtopping
  • Coastal dikes and embankment seawalls
  • Armoured rubble slopes and mounds
  • Vertical and steep seawalls
  • Examples

Wave overtopping for Coastal Structures – The European Overtopping Manual

Wave overtopping is one of the relevant processes for the design of coastal structures. The short course will focus on water levels and wave conditions, tolerable overtopping discharges, prediction of overtopping, approaches for sea dikes and embankments, vertical walls and rough coastal structures. The two-day course gives guidance on analysis and/or prediction of wave overtopping for flood defences attacked by wave action.

PRE-CONFERENCE TRAINING COURSE CONTENT

This course introduces:

  • An introduction to the manual on wave overtopping of sea defences and related structures: An overtopping manual largely based on European research, but for worldwide application (EurOtop manual).
  • An introduction to techniques used to predict wave overtopping at shoreline structures.
  • Approaches for sea dikes and embankments, vertical walls and rough coastal structures.
  • Guidance on tolerable discharges and overtopping processes.
  • Use existing tools to calculate wave overtopping (desk calculations; use of the neural network tool; PC Overtopping; EurOtop's online calculation tool).
  • Example calculations and case studies are used to illustrate key methods along with iterative or explicit approaches to setting a crest level.

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Those who needs to be able to anticipate and/or predict wave overtopping including graduate and chartered engineers, flood risk managers, sea dikes and embankments consultants, contractors, owners and operators of coastal or reservoir/lake frontages, post-graduate researchers.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course participants will: be familiar with the most recent guidance on wave overtopping; water levels and wave conditions, tolerable overtopping discharges, prediction of overtopping, approaches for sea dikes and embankments, vertical walls and rough coastal structures, use existing tools to calculate wave overtopping, be able to devise alternative solutions to wave overtopping problems with confidence by understanding the overtopping process, and direct experience of the main prediction methods.
