Cost-effective Optimization of Rubble-mound Breakwater Cross Sections
This report discusses design criteria, design procedures, and practical considerations involved in planning, design, and construction of rubble-mound breakwaters. Currently available methods for estimating rates of damage to breakwater armor and for predicting wave transmission characteristics are also described. Using information typically available today to most breakwater designers, a step-wide procedure is presented which can identify an optimum breakwater cross section, both in terms of structural integrity and functional performance.
