ON THE STABILITY OF BERM BREAKWATERS IN SHALLOW AND DEEP WATER

Alf Torum

Abstract


The paper describes laboratory tests on berm breakwaters in shallow water, e.g. in water depths where waves might break before they break on the breakwater. Analysis have been made of test results for breakwaters in shallow and deep waters and a unified design equation is presented for the berm recession of berm breakwaters in shallow and deep water.
