RISK EVALUATION AT DIQUE DEL OESTE BREAKWATER IN PALMA DE MALLORCA (SPAIN)

Elena Calcerrada, Ana María Díaz, Raquel Balmaseda, Álvaro Galán, Carmen Castillo

Abstract


Breakwaters are subject to coastal storms but also to climate change. The stochastic nature of both wave loading and structural response is different nowadays (and in the near future) from those at the time they were designed and the main investments are related to conservation and maintenance. Therefore, an updated risk analysis is needed in order to decide about adaptation or mitigation actions.
