DESIGN OF ROCK ARMOURED SINGLE LAYER RUBBLE MOUND BREAKWATER

T. Hald, A. Torum, T. Holm-Karlsen

Abstract


There have been several investigations on the stability of site specific single layer breakwaters, e.g. for SOVIET Fishing Port, Bratteland and T0rum (1971) and for Berlevaag Harbour, Kjelstrup (1977). However, despite the frequent use of the single layer design only little systematic investigations of the stability have been conducted until now. During the winter/spring 1997 a series of physical model tests have been conducted at SINTEF with focus on the hydraulic stability of the single layer rubble mound breakwater armour layer and the wave induced loading (Hald and T0rum (1997)). The present paper describes the results of these tests.
