SHIP-WAVE ATTENUATION TESTS OF A PROTOTYPE FLOATING BREAKWATER

Ronald E. Nece, Norman K. Skjelbreia

Abstract


Limited data are presented for the ship-wave attenuation of a prototype concrete pontoon floating breakwater. Results are compared with wave attenuation performance of a breakwater of identical crosssection and similar anchoring configuration as predicted by model tests using monochromatic waves. Field test procedures and limitations are described.
