Laboratory investigations conducted by and for the Waterways Experiment Station under ES 815, "Stability of Rubble-Mound Breakwaters," determined the relative importance of the different variables with respect to the stability of rubble-mound breakwaters and formulated design criteria for those structures. In ES 815, test-wave dimensions, water...

Shock pressures of high intensity and short duration may occur during breaking of waves on coastal structures, slamming of ships, landing of seaplanes, and water entry of naval projectiles with flat nose. The phenomenon of shock pressures resulting from the impact between a solid and a liquid can better be described as a water hammer phenomenon...

Two new types of mobile breakwaters consisting of tire and sphere assemblies, respectively, were tested. Tests covered a wide range of wave conditions, water depths, and breakwater dimensions. Experimental measurements were made to determine the wave reflection and wave transmission coefficients, the power dissipated by the breakwaters, and the...
