INTERACTION BETWEEN MAIN ARMOUR AND TOE BERM DAMAGE

P. Aminti, A. Lamberti

Abstract


Wave flume tests were carried out aiming to describe and quantify the interaction between main armour and toe-berm damage up to failure. Experiments are descibed in brief, as well as the qualitative combined damaging process. An interaction scheme is formulated; data and formulae are provided for the quantification of the risk implied in the combined failure.
