Abstract


The basic and detailed design of revetments and breakwaters in the Oresund Link were carried out by the Consultant, Carl Bro a/s4 for the Contractor, Oresund Marine Joint Venture, OMJV , based on design requirements and additional background information given by the Owner, Oresundskonsortiet, OSK. Final design was to be approved by the Owner, but with the liability of the Consultant/Contractor and with due consideration to the contractors method of construction. As part of the design process and in order to fulfil given geometrical restrictions the design requirements where further elaborated based on results of physical model tests and desk studies of critical assumptions.
