STATIC AND DYNAMIC LOADS ON THE BOTTOM ROW OF ARMOUR UNITS: A THEORETICAL AND PHYSICAL MODEL STUDY

Michael Alexander van de Koppel, Michiel Muilwijk, Henk Jan Verhagen

Abstract


A physical model study on the row averaged static and dynamic load on the bottom row of single layer armour units in order to investigate the influence of various parameters such as the number of rows on the slope of a breakwater and the initial relative packing density.

Keywords


rubble-mound breakwater; static load; dynamic load; bottom row;
