ARMOUR DISPLACEMENTS ON RESHAPING BREAKWATERS

P.A. Norton, P. Holmes

Abstract


A computer simulation model for the reshaping of dynamically stable breakwaters under normally incident, monochromatic waves has been developed. The proposed model is used to simulate initial reshaping as well as transport on the developed profile. Preliminary validation of the model has been carried out by comparison with data obtained from experimental tests on a berm breakwater.
