The measurement of velocity fields of a plunging wave impacting on a structure in a two-dimensional wave flume was investigated experimentally. As the wave impinged and overtopped the structure, a large highly aerated region was created in front of the structure and water splashed on top of the structure. The broken wave in front of the structure and associated greenwater on top of the structure are highly aerated containing not only a large number of bubbles but also very large sizes of… CONTINUE READING
