Abstract


Wave disturbance study for a closed end jetty conducted both in laboratory and through a numerical model is presented in this study. Shore protection structures and the structures at the end of the piers are considered for the calculation of the wave disturbance map. The connection locations of the jetties have been designed as vertical walls. These vertical structures and armored waterfront structures would affect the wave behavior in the study area along jetty axis causing reflection of waves and therefore the wave height in front of the structures might increase. This study intends to clarify wave agitation problem by using a numerical model with the help of physical model study.
