New data is presented from large scale model tests where combined measurements of wave pressure and aeration have been made on the front of a vertical and an inclined wall. The shape of the breaking wave was found to have a significant effect on the distribution of the wave impact pressures on the wall. The characteristics of violent wave impacts are discussed and related to the impulse on the structure.
