FUNDAMENTAL CHARACTERISTICS OF A NEW WAVE ABSORBING SYSTEM USING SAND LIQUEFACTION

S. Takahashi, S. Yamamoto, H. Miura

Abstract


When a sand bed is liquefied due to a high pore pressure gradient, it significantly reduces the height of waves passing over it. This study investigates the fundamental characteristics of a liquefied sand bed including the wave damping effect.
