DEVELOPMENT OF DESIGN CRITERIA FOR SEGMENTED BREAKWATERS

Joan Pope, Julie L. Dean

Abstract


This paper will discuss experience and approaches to the use of segmented breakwaters for beach erosion control in the United States. Several prototype cases are examined and generalizations drawn concerning the resultant beach response. This experience is further evaluated in order to develop a preliminary approach for developing design criteria.
