Abstract

Breaking wave induced run-up can significantly risk infrastructure in coastal areas. For instance, run-up elevation can cause coastal flooding. Moreover, the momentum flux transported onshore can also exert forces on beaches and coastal structures. This study aims at predicting shoreline forces and inundation depths via numerical simulation as well as better understanding coastal run-up events.
