Abstract

Scour in front of coastal structures is a major threat to structural stability and safety of properties behind. In this study, a Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes Solver (RANS) is combined with a Volume of Fluid (VOF) (RANS-VOF) surface capturing scheme to investigate the wave interactions with a Seawall and its adjacent sea bed. The main objective is to investigate the effects of wave breaking and beach slope on toe scour in front of a vertical wall.
