PRE-CONFERENCE TRAINING COURSE: “EUROTOP AND SEADIKE DESIGN” WILL BE HELD FROM 23rd-24th SEPTEMBER, 2019
The 10th International Conference on Asian and Pacic Coasts (APAC2019) will organize the short course "EUROTOP AND SEADIKE DESIGN". This in-depth, two day course is taught by Professor Schüttrumpf Holger, an editor of the EurOtop Manual and well-known experts in the wave overtopping field. Participants will receive a certicate of completion after the pre-conference training course
PRE-CONFERENCE TRAINING COURSE:
“EUROTOP AND SEADIKE DESIGN”
Lecturer: Prof. Schüttrumpf Holger, RWTH Aachen University, Germany.
Schedule: 23rd-24th September, 2019 at Thuyloi University, Hanoi, Vietnam
- Water levels and wave conditions
- Tolerable discharges
- Prediction of overtopping
- Coastal dikes and embankment seawalls
- Armoured rubble slopes and mounds
- Vertical and steep seawalls
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?
Post-graduate students in construction field. Engineers in design, construction, project management, dike and coastal structures management.
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.
