The need for coastal structures, such as breakwaters, at great water depths is rapidly increasing as a result ofthe increasing draught of large vessels and off-shore land reclamations which can, for instance, be used for the benefit of the expansion of harbours and related industrial activities. In water depths greater than approximately 10 m...

During the construction of breakwaters contractors often encounter undesired reshaping of exposed core material. This reshaping is comparable to the deformation process of berm breakwaters in which the outer profile reshapes into a more stable s-curve. In the case of oblique waves this deformation is enhanced by a longshore transport of stones...

Breakwaters with single layer concrete armour are very commonly applied nowadays. Much research is available on the stability of single layer armour units on the seaward slope. However, rear slopes design methods for single layer armour units are rare. On rear side slopes usually similar sized units as on the seaward slope are applied. Limited...

Door de jaren heen is er veel onderzoek gedaan naar golfbrekers en de stabiliteit van de 'armour layer'. Hieruit is gebleken dat de plaatsingsdichtheid van de 'armour layer' elementen een belangrijke parameter is. De doelstelling van dit onderzoek is om inzicht te verkrijgen in de invloed van de plaatsingsdichtheid op de stabiliteit van kubussen...

Two dimensional physical model tests are executed with Xbloc armour units on low crested structures to answer the objective. On the basis of findings in the literature study it can be expected that the stability of the Xbloc elements on low-crested breakwaters is a function of crest freeboard and crest width. The crest freeboard (Rc/Dn) varied...

The stability formula developed by Van der Meer is used for the design of different kind of rock slopes. In the formula is among a number of other parameters also the permeability of the structure represented. A more permeable structure has the ability to dissipate more water and therefore more energy, this results into a lower required weight...

Breakwaters are used for reducing wave height in harbours or divert sediment. One of the types of breakwaters is the rubble mound breakwater. These structures are constructed with smaller quarry rock as core and larger quarry rock as outer layer. For economical reasons, the design allows some damage to the armour layer. The amount of damage is...

Dit verslag geeft een beschrijving van een onderzoek naar de golfbelasting van kruinmuren boven op breukstenen golfbrekers. Een kruinmuur is een betonnen element dat boven op een golfbreker geplaatst wordt. De voornaamste functie is het terugbrengen van de overslag zonder toepassing van zeer veel stortsteen en toplaagelementen. In dit onderzoek...

Onderzoek naar de inzet van materieel voor het transport van stenen over water, ten behoeve van de bouw van een golfbreker. Vanuit de praktijk (Boskalis) is de vraag gekomen om het bakkentransportproces, zoals dat plaatsvindt bij de bouw van offshore golfbrekers, nader te bestuderen. De reden daarvan is, dat de berekende productie met behulp van...

In deze studie zijn voor een fictieve golfbreker lay-out in relatief ondiep water de totale projectkosten tijdens de geplande levensduur van een conventionele stortstenen golfbreker, een caissongolfbreker en een samengestelde golfbreker vergeleken. De totale golfbrekerlengte van deze lay-out is circa 4000 m en strekt zich uit tot in een...

From the ten breakwaters we selected, on the amount of reliable information available, one breakwater in Richards Bay, South Africa. The preliminary check, made in the first phase, showed the design of this breakwater was rather conservative. From surveys done on the breakwater although, it appeared that the armor-layer was damaged in storms...

Recently, interest in vertical breakwaters has grown. The development of ports from natural small harbours to artificial large harbours facing the outer sea has demanded the construction of breakwaters in rougher seas. The vertical breakwater could play a role of importance in this development. To obtain general guidelines for the design of...

Seaports are often protected against waves and currents by rubble mound breakwaters. At the interface between outer breakwater slope and seabed a toe structure is often build, which provides stability to the outer slope. The toe consists of a relatively small heap of rock. Since 1977 dedicated studies are made to the stability of these rock...

Prototype single layer armour units on a breakwater slope are observed to break. To predict when breakage occurs, the objective of this research project is to obtain knowledge on, and measurements of the rocking behaviour and failure mode of single layer armour units. A single cube on a breakwater slope is subjected to investigations. An...

Voorstudie Om de leidende rol die de haven van Rotterdam in de wereldhandel heeft te kunnen handhaven is het noodzakelijk voor de komende decennia ruimte te creeren in de nabijheid van de haven. Dit kan door het aanleggen van een tweede Maasvlakte, een landaanwinning in zee. Het is mogelijk gebleken deze Maasvlakte 2 technisch, morfologisch,...

Interlocking, single layer concrete armour units are placed in a specific grid depending on the type of armour unit. Within this grid, armour units are placed in horizontal rows. The number of horizontal rows of single layer armour units on a breakwater is limited to 20. This limit is proposed in order to prevent major settlements, which might...

In een gebied als Nederland met een relatiefflauw oplopende kust, heeft de conventionele stortstenen golfbreker in het verleden de voorkeur gekregen boven andere typen golfbrekers. Binnen de brekerzone wordt de golfhoogte begrensd door de waterdiepte, wat de keuze ten aanzien van de conventioneIe stortstenen golfbreker bevestigt aangezien de...

Breakwaters are important for the preservation and development of coastal areas. Submerged breakwaters have significant advantages compared to emerged, such as economical construction and preservation, milder effect on landscape and under conditions, preservation of marine flora and fauna inside it. The main objective of this study is to give...

The protection of breakwater structures is in this research considered. The design of rubble mound concrete armour layers for breakwaters can be divided in a single layer system and a double layer system. The single layer system is nowadays mostly applied because of the high interlocking, high stability of the structure, reduction of concrete...
