REFLECTION PERFORMANCE OF ROCK ARMOURED SLOPES IN RANDOM WAVES

N.W.H. Allsop

Abstract


Waves reflected from breakwaters and sea walls may cause navigation or mooring problems in or near harbours, and may increase beach erosion or local scour. This paper gives results of hydraulic model tests on the reflection characteristics of idealised rock armoured slopes. Examples of the performance of a number of practical structures are also discussed.
