Short summary
Hindcasted wave data were used to define proper environmental conditions at sea, with the aim of estimating the design conditions of an innovative quay wall concept. The results of a computational fluid dynamics model are used to optimise the design of a non-reflective quay wall of Vlorë Harbour. The proposed method based on numerical modelling allows for the identification of the best site-specific solution and for a location devoid of any wave measurements.
