Mean wave overtopping discharge is generally accepted to be a primary design criterion for assessing the performance of coastal structures. It is a boundary condition for many coastal flood risk assessments. Modern methods for assessing wave overtopping discharges and their consequences are well documented and reported. Among the various tools available for assessing wave overtopping, the use of artificial neural networks has become increasingly popular. This paper introduces the next stage in the development of these models. Using the same source data, the new generic meta-modelling overtopping model reduces uncertainties and gives clear guidance on the range and validity of the outputs.
