STRUCTURAL RESPONSE OF DOLOS IN WAVES

Abstract


Several numerical models for estimating wave forces on dolosse are presented. These models are incorporated into a finite element method (FEM) analysis of a 42-ton unit. The results of the analysis permit identification of unit structural failure with respect to wave conditions.
