In this work a newly developed numerical model was employed to conduct comprehensive numerical modeling to investigate the waves overtopping at a vertical seawall, and the associated impact pressures with a certain breaking wave condition. The objective is to qualitative and quantitative understanding of individual violent wave overtopping events on seawalls.
