WAVE-INDUCED PORE PRESSURE IN RUBBLE MOUND BREAKWATERS

H. Oumeraci, H.W. Partenscky

Abstract


Experimental results from large scale tests are presented for the distribution of wave-induced pore pressure within rubble mound breakwaters, for the reflection coefficients and the damping of wave motion through the armour and under-layer. The results are then discussed with respect to application and further research.
