This paper presents the results of a systematic validation of numerical simulation of reflection and transmission of rubble-mound breakwater structures. The aim of the study is to provide a body of validation measurements for increasingly complex situations, starting simple and building up the comlexity in terms of breawater geometry, wave...

Since 1977 dedicated studies are made to the stability of rubble mound break-water toes under wave attack. A large number of stability methods is available, but prediction accuracy is low and validity ranges are too small for use in prac-tice. In this research the decoupled model approach is used to evaluate predic-tion capacity of existing toe...

In the ROCK MANUAL (2007) some guidance is given for the design of toes for breakwaters. However, for very shallow toes, as well as for very wide toes (or berms) this guidance is only marginally. Recently a number of shallow berms and toes have been constructed, partly with the intention to lower the height of the breakwater. These works showed...

In the Rock Manual [2007] two sets of equations for the determination of rock stability in breakwaters armour layers are presented. One set is the original formula presented by Van der Meer [1988], valid for deep water conditions. This set uses the parameters Hs and Tm. The other set is an adaptation of these formulae, using the parameters H2%...

This paper introduces a co-operative project between HR Wallingford UK (HRW) and Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, (TUD) to develop, populate, and then to apply a database on all major breakwaters around the world. It builds on, and revives, similar initiatives that originate in the late 1970s. The paper describes the objectives in...

The effect of single layer interlocking armour unit breakage on the hydraulic armour layer stability and potential damage progression is addressed in this paper. A 2-dimensional scale model of a rubble mound breakwater with an armour layer consisting of Xbloc armour units was tested. The residual armour layer stability with broken units was...

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...
