PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT OF SELF-DREDGING HARBOUR ENTRANCES

J.W. Carmichael, I. MacInnis

Abstract


This provides further information and assessment of the three harbour entrance wave traps at Dingwall, Inverness and Pleasant Bay located in Canada. These were constructed to reduce the amount of maintenance dredging required in the entrance channels. Wave climate data and littoral material analysis are presented. Observations on the performance of each structure are given and conclusions drawn as to restrictions and constraints on applicability.
