ANALYSIS OF WAVE FORCES ACTING ON COMBINED CAISSONS WITH INNER SLOPE RUBBLE MOUND

Carla Faraci, Yong Liu

Abstract


This study examines the horizontal wave forces acting on combined caissons with inner slope rubble mound based on the semi-analytical solution of Liu and Faraci (2014). The calculating method of the horizontal wave forces are presented and validated. The effects of several caisson parameters on the wave forces are shown using some numerical examples. Some useful results are presented for engineering designs.

Keywords
