WAVE OVERTOPPING AND STABILITY OR ARMOR UNITS UNDER MULTIDIRECTIONAL WAVES

T. Sakakiyama, R. Kajima

Abstract


This paper describes the wave overtopping along a seawall of a man-made island where nuclear power plants are projected to construct and the stability of armor units at the concave section of seawall. Effects of the wave directionality on them were investigated by using multidirectional wave basin not only for a design wave but also larger waves than the design one to ascertain the durability and margin of the safety of seawall.
