A breakwater crown wall can increase the overall effectiveness of the structure in limiting wave overtopping. This study has addressed two of the major aspects of the design of breakwater crown walls: the efficiency with which such walls deal with wave overtopping; and the forces imparted to the front face of the crown wall. This report draws together information from previous studies, together with results from a series of random wave model tests.
