Abstract


This paper intends to present results of the research work on structural stability of tetrapods done at the University of Hannover. The results are brought in accordance with interpretations from the hydraulic tests made in the large wave flume and prototype realisations. The analysis of the data are supposed to bring a clarification of the similitude problems related to the transfer of the measured impact strains to prototype conditions.

Keywords
