Abstract: Overtopping is one of the most dynamic phenomena that occur in coastal structures. The amount of overtopping is influenced by many factors and is an interesting research study to this day. Overtopping discharge formula obtained from empirical studies. However, research on the effect of waved eformation on overtopping discharge, especially on coastal structures with the concept of Wave Energy Converter (WEC)-breakwater integration is still limited. An experimental study was conducted to analyze and obtain the effect of waved eformation on overtopping discharges that occur at OWEC-breakwater with multi slope. OWEC-breakwater models are tested on 2D wave channels with several variations in wave height, wave period and water level. From the results of the study, it was found that the greater the value of the reflection coefficient, resulting in a greater number of overtopping. It was also found that the greater the value of the breaker parameter causes the overtopping discharge to increase. This study also obtained a range of breaker parameter values outside the range of breaker parameter values which has been obtained widely.
