Olin F. Weymouth, Orville T. Magoon

Abstract


The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a four-year study of the stability of a prototype breakwater armor layer composed of 28-ton concrete quadripods The study was conducted by measuring the incident wave height and the quadripod movements during this period. The ultimate goal of this study is the verification of empirical breakwater design equations.
