In order to avoid failure in its lifetime, a breakwater system has to be inspected and, if necessary, has to be repaired. In this paper, a comprehensive maintenance strategy with optimal inspection planning is formulated. Rational maintenance decision-making approaches are discussed. The proposed maintenance strategy combines time-dependent and...

This paper presents a comprehensive maintenance strategy with optimal inspection planning and its application to rubble mound breakwaters. In order to fulfil designated functions, a breakwater has to be inspected during its lifetime and has to be repaired if necessary. Actions of inspecting and repairing form a maintenance strategy. In the paper...

Design formulas for bed protections in the port of Rotterdam were investigated. Using depthsoundings, the actual level of stability of a quay wall can be compared with the design formulas. The loads on a bottom protection differ, because of diversity in shipping and tidal motion. Therefore a better comparison can be made by resembling the...

In a classical design approach to breakwaters a design wave height is determined, and filled in into a design formula. Some undefined safety is added. In the method using partial safety coefficients (as developed by PIANC [1992] and recently also adopted by the Coastal Engineering Manual of the US Army Corps of Engineers [CEM [2003]) the degree...

In history PIANC has paid quite some attentions to breakwaters, in ancient years results of practical experience have been published in the country presentations at the Conferences, but later some of these papers started to have a more scientific basis. One of the first papers giving a good background on the processes of stability of breakwaters...

One of the major problems in the design of coastal structures is that the design has to be based on very uncertain input data. This implies that the degree of uncertainty is an important value for the designer. In traditional design the uncertainty is not really quantified, but an overall “safety factor” is included. The problem of this approach...
