In a world affected by climate change and sea-level rise, intense storms are expected to become more frequent in the future. This implies that our coastal protections will be more often and more intensely affected by overtopping waves, potentially endangering the safety of our coastal communities. The objective of the present study is to investigate the hazard to people/pedestrians by postwave overtopping flows over an inclined surface, simulating a coastal dike.
