RELIABILITY ANALYSIS OF RUBBLE-MOUND BREAKWATERS

Kazumasa Mizumura, Masato Yamamoto, Taiji Endo, Naofumi Shiraishi

Abstract


To verify the effect of wave period on the motion of concrete blocks in rubble-mound breakwaters, simple physical models are employed and their motion is investigated by the numerical simulation. Finally, risk or reliability are calculated and the weight of concrete blocks for given physical condition is discussed by them.
