Abstract

In this study, to clarify the characteristics of the splash run-ups generated at a vertical seawall, field observations were conducted on an artificial island. The heights and frequencies of splash run-ups at the seawall, the wave-overtopping quantity, the quantity of splash, and the wind (velocity and direction) were measured in the field observations. The main findings obtained from the observational results are as follows: 1) it was found out that the places where the wave run-ups occur frequently, and the relationship of the places, the structural type of the seawall and wave directions were clarified, 2) it was understood that the run-up heights become larger as the frequency of the run-ups increases, regardless of wave directions and locations of the seawall, 3) the probability density function of occurrence frequency of the splash run-up height can be practically considered the Rayleigh distribution, 4) the quantities of the water overflowing the seawall and the spatial distributions of the splash quantities were clarified.
