The numerical or empirical models are useful tools to understand the wave overtopping phenomena, but uncertainty remains on their applicability. It’s necessary to carry out monitoring campaigns or laboratory tests to support them. In this paper we apply the proposed in the EurOtop Manual to predict the flows over a vertical breakwater, marking the need to calibrate these methods to take into account the peculiar geometry of the outer breakwater. This was done by introducing appropriate correction factors. The results show improved accuracy when compared with the two-dimensional physical model tests conducted at the LIM laboratory in Barcelona.
