INFLUENCE OF WAVE DIRECTIONALITY ON STABILITY OF BREAKWATER HEADS

Y. Matsumi, E.P.D. Mansard, J. Rutledge

Abstract


An experimental investigation was undertaken to investigate the stability of breakwater heads under uni and multidirectional wave attacks. Waves of normal and oblique incidence were used in the investigations and the stability results were assessed along with relevant measurements of wave surface elevation, measured in the proximity of breakwater heads.
