STABLE PROFILES OF RESHAPING BREAKWATERS WITH A BERM BELOW THE WATER LEVEL

C.I. Moutsouris

Abstract


An experimental study of breakwaters with an initially horizontal berm below the SWL was conducted in a wave flume. The study aimed at defining the shape and geometrical features of the adjusted stable profiles and at confirming the existence of a zone of non-significant profile adjustment below the initially flat and horizontal slope.
