DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF VERTICAL STRUCTURES TO BREAKING WAVE FORCES - REVIEW OF THE CIS DESIGN EXPERIENCE

J.G. Marinski, H. Oumeraci

Abstract


The necessity of a dynamic analysis and the dynamic approaches available in the CIS, formerly Soviet Union, for the stability of vertical structures subject to breaking wave impact loads are first briefly discussed. The different steps of the dynamic method recommended by the Russian Design Guidelines VNIIG-77 are presented. The results obtained by using the different static and dynamic methods for a numerical example are compared. Finally the effect of the nonlinear behaviour of the foundation of the structure under impact loads is discussed.

Keywords
