INVESTIGATIONS OF WAVE-PRESSURE FORMULAS DUE TO DAMAGES OF BREAKWATERS

Shoshichiro Nagai, Katsuhiko Kurata

Abstract


The wave-pressure formulas derived in our laboratory have been verified by the investigations of the slide of the vertical walls of composite-type breakwaters due to severe waves during heavy storms which have attacked numerous harbors in Japan since 1959. Some of the examples are shown in this paper.

Keywords


wave pressure; breakwater damage; damage formulas
