BREAKWATER STABILITY - BREAKING WAVE DATA

Robert D. Carver, D. Donald Davidson

Abstract


The objective of the research presented is to furnish design information for stone and dolos armor on non-overtopping breakwater trunks that are subjected to severe depth-limited breaking waves. Since it would be a mammoth task to comprehensively investigate all the different types of existing armor, this particular research effort concentrated on stone, which is a natural and economical protection when it is of sufficient size and quality to meet design constraints, and on the dolos, which according to nonbreaking wave data is the best hydraulically stable concrete armor unit.
