Abstract The relationship between wave set-up, wave run-up and beach water table is reviewed, starting from the work and ideas of Nielsen and using laboratory observations of wave set-up and beach water table in beaches formed from various beach materials under similar wave conditions. A new more extensive analysis of wave set-up on impermeable fixed plane beaches has been made using all available experimental data. Scaling parameters for set-up and water depth, based upon both deep water and breaking wave conditions and incorporating appropriate forms of the surf similarity parameter, are developed. The dimensionless set-up parameters are of the form ( n{long right leg}-n{long right leg}b) H0ξ0 n where 0.3 < n < 0.5 for deep water wave parameters and (n{long right leg}-n{long right leg}b) Hb (tan α)Ib n where n ≈ 0.4 for breaking wave conditions. ξ0 = (tan α) HO LO and Ib = Hb 1 2 g 1 2 T tan α.
