Abstract


A number of studies have been undertaken recently to select optimum methods for rehabilitating damaged breakwaters in the Mediterranean and in the Atlantic Ocean. This paper outlines the approach to these studies and discusses the relative merits of the various concepts considered for repairing the damaged structures. Based on case studies of two projects, the paper also shows how the principle concepts have been successfully applied.
