ON THE FLOATING BREAKWATER - A NEW ARRANGEMENT

C.H. Lee, S.W. Twu

Abstract


A new type of floating breakwater composed of net-tubes and buoy-balls is presented in this paper. A series of model studies have been carried out for several arrangements of this structure. As wave damping effect is concerned, a case that the structure being set vertically is shown to be better than the one being set horizontally, while more than two rows of the structures are set vertically and separately, a case which being connected with ropes between adjoining rows is proved to be better than the case without connecting ropes.
