  • "New Physical Insights and Design Formulas on Wave Overtopping at Sloping and Vertical Structures" by Jentsje van der Meer and Tom Bruce ( Vol. 140, No. 6 , 04014025).
  • "Numerical Investigation of Turbulence Modulation by Sediment-Induced Stratification and Enhanced Viscosity in Oscillatory Flows" by Xiao Yu, C.E. Ozdemir, Tian-Jian Hsu, and S. Balachandar ( Vol. 140, No. 2 , pp. 160-172)
  • "Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics Numerical Modeling of Structures Impacted by Tsunami Bores." Phillipe St-Germain, Ioan Nistor, Ronald Townsend, and Tomoya Shibayama ( Vol. 140, No. 1 , pp. 66-81).
