Validation of applicability of dam-break flow to green water prediction Conference Paper uri icon


  • The Ritter's dam-break flow solution was used to the prediction of overtopping green water on an offshore structure, The velocity of green water on a two-dimensional simplified model structure was measured using a newly developed technique called bubble image velocimetry (BIV), The Ritter's analytical solution for the dam-break flow problem is examined and compared with the measurements under an extreme wave condition.
