The seawall for artificial islands is required to protect the inland facilities from severe wave actions such as wave run-up, wave-overtopping, and high water spray. However, it is almost impossible to completely prevent wave-overtopping in deepwater by a conventional upright seawall. In this study, considering the characteristics of the wave run-up in deepwater, we have tried to develop a non wave-overtopping type seawall with a low crown height.
