FIELD ANALYSIS OF WAVE ACTION ON BREAKWATER

Alessandro Muraca, Vito Rossi

Abstract


Field analysis of breakwater damage progression has been performed using monitoring programs which included both photographic and topographic surveying. Reliable information on cover blocks displacement were obtained using a metric camera and a digitizer. Measured damage was compared with those estimated using empirical formulae. A computer model, capable of predicting damage progression, has been also calibrated using in site collected data. Predicted damage has been satisfactory also for long time interval period.
