The dimensions of single layer concrete armour units (interlocking armour units) are calculated with a similar stability relation as the stability relation for quarry stone. In these design formulas an 'average/significant' wave load is used (Hs). Since quarry stone gains its stability only from gravity, this type of armour unit is constructed...

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...

The aim of this study is the particularisation of the accuracy margins for the determination of the damage level in the experimental plan proposed by Remon Kik at his thesis for the study of Notional Permeability of breakwaters “The experimental research of the permeability factor P”. The evaluation of the proposed technique took place by means...

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 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...

In JUMELET [2010] a method with a physical basis (so called “Volume Exchange model”) to determine the ‘notional’ permeability coefficient P was developed. The ‘notional’ permeability coefficient was previously introduced in the stability formula of the armour layer; see VAN DER MEER [1988]. In this latter study this coefficient was empirically...

This report describes the influence of the slope angle of a breakwater slope, the density of the concrete of the Xbloc armour unit, the vertical position of the Xbloc on the breakwater slope and the roughness of the under layer of the breakwater on the extraction force of an Xbloc armour unit. By testing the extraction force, indirectly the...

Along the northern coast of Morocco order has been given for the construction of a large transshipment port in the Mediterranean Sea, at a designated project location around the city of Nador. On this green-field coastal stretch a new transhipment port will have to be developed for various types of cargo. Throughputs of the terminals will have...

The overtopping empirical formulas calculate the discharge only at the top of the crest of a coastal protection structure. On the other hand, the tolerable overtopping discharges are defined at certain points behind the crest where the total overtopping is reduced. The scope of this thesis is to find an empirical formula to describe the...

The purpose of this report is to investigate the differences in overtopping characteristics over the crest of a rubble mound breakwater when the crest is made either impermeable or permeable. Among numerous characteristics that are effected by a modification in the permeability of the crest, this report looks specifically into three separate...

Mulders, P.H.M. (author)
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...

Albania has the following major sea ports: Durrës, Vlora, Sarandë and Shëngjin. The port of Durrës has the biggest share in the volume of import/export in Albania, nearly 75%. Due to current development rates, limited possibilities for expansion and pollution in the city because of its vicinity to the port, projects are identified to construct a...

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...

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...

This thesis is about the influence of the specific weight on the stability of single layer interlocking armour units on rubble mound breakwaters. The hydraulic stability of the Xbloc armour unit is expressed by the stability number which is based on the assumption of dominance of lift, drag and gravity forces. If other forces have significant...

In an attempt to reduce the cost of breakwaters, several elements have been developed. Examples are Accropodes, Tetrapods and concrete cubes. Previous tests were performed with armour layers consisting of a double layer of cubes. This study is based on a single layer of cubes. The great benefit of a single layer of cubes is that it reduces the...

The purpose of this thesis was to develop a preliminary concept design of a wave energy converter. The type of device designed was limited by several starting points which stipulated, among other criteria, a robust structure which can be constructed within a breakwater and can generate electricity from a fairly mild (in the order of Hs=0.5-1.5m)...

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...
