The paper presents an overview on the computational tools developed in CIMNE for the analysis of the behavior of rockfill dams in overtopping scenarios, as well as for the design of protections systems against overtopping. In this latter case two different applications are presented: the design tool for a wedge shaped blocks (WSB) shoulder protection and the computational models for the analysis of the hydraulic performance of highly convergent spillways. Advanced finite element techniques are combined with particle techniques and artificial neural networks in the framework of the Kratos Multiphysics for reaching the optimal solution procedure for any of the above mentioned problems. An extensive validation is carried out using experimental data provided by the SERPA group of the Technical University of Madrid.
