1. Comparison in Wave Overtopping without and with Wind

A. Low Wind Speed


Without wind: The following animation shows a wave overtopping at a sea wall without wind effect , demonstrating a  higher overshoot of jumping water as the wave lashes over the seawall: 
Wind speed Wsp = 0, Wave height Hmo = 0.3m, Mean wave period Tm = 5 s,  Sea water level SWL= 0.8m, Free board Rc = 0.3m.

With wind: The following animation shows a wave overtopping at a sea wall with wind effect, demonstrating a significant portion of the jumping water that otherwise falls back to sea is blown over the seawall:

Wsp = 10m/s, Hmo = 0.3m, Tm = 5 s,  SWL= 0.8m, Rc = 0.3m .


B. High Wind Speed

Without wind: The following animation shows a wave overtopping at a sea wall without wind effect , demonstrating a higher overshoot of jumping water as the wave lashes over the seawall: 

Wsp = 0, Hmo = 3.5m, Tm = 8 s, SWL= 10m, Rc = 2m.

With wind: The following animation shows a wave overtopping at a sea wall with wind effect, demonstrating a significant portion of the jumping water that otherwise falls back to sea is blown over the seawall:

Wsp = 50m/s, Hmo = 3.5m, Tm = 8 s, SWL= 10m, Rc = 2m.
