WAVE FORCE ON BREAKWATERS WITH CONCRETE BLOCK MOUN

Masataro Hattori, Keiji Inagaki, Yuuji Noguchi, Taiji Endo

Abstract


Analytical theory is derived for prediction of the wave force acting on a upright structure armored by concrete block mound of rectangular shape. The theoretical treatment starts from the linear long wave theory and the flow resistance in the mound is described by a linearized friction law. As a practical application of the theory, approximate method for the structure with sloping block mound is proposed. Experiments are conducted to verify the theory and approximate method.

Keywords
