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...

Scrap tires are proposed as a construction material for building large floating mat type breakwater devices. The Goodyear scrap tire floating breakwater assemblies are formed by securing together modular bundles of tightly interlocked scrap tires with high strength rope/cable, or special corrosion resistant steel rods. This construction...

Hales, L.Z. (author)
A multitude of conceptual models of floating breakwaters have been proposed without extensive or complete evaluation of most of these concepts. The technical literature regarding floating breakwater applicability and design procedures is fragmentary and sometimes confusing. Clear, concise guidance does not always exist for those responsible for...

The purpose of this report is to find out which floating breakwaters can be utilized in open sea conditions and what can be expected of them. Since every breakwater interferes with the energy of the waves, it is logical that a probable power generation function of floating breakwaters is also investigated. This report is a global review of the...

Deel II bevat het derde deelverslag uit maart 1988 waarin de dynamische golfbreker constructief wordt uitgewerkt. En waarin ook een kostenschatting van de dynamische golfbreker in het Ekofisk veld is gemaakt. De dynamische golfbreker is een golfdempingssysteem bestaande uit een groot aantal boeien die onder het zeeoppervlak verankerd worden, en...

This study for a service port in Beira Harbour can be divided into three different parts. These parts will be discussed below in the sequence in which they have been carried out. The first part consists of the preparations for the journey to Beira and the actual site investigation. In Beira a site investigation had been carried out to obtain all...

A study has been conducted to investigate the wave attenuation characteristics and the mooring forces of a new concept of a floating breakwater concept i n a three-dimensional wave situation with regular waves. A literature study showed that the mooring forces of a floating breakwater in a two dimensional wave situation hardly had been studied....

Onderzoek naar de invloed van drijvende golfbrekers op de kust van Delfland. Om de werking te zien van het zanddiode-principe in te zien, is zowel voor het langstransport als het dwarstransport, een mathematisch model toegepast op de Delflandse kust. Uit de berekeningen van het langstransport kwam naar voren, dat het mogelijk was om het netto...

It is foreseen that the future expansion of the Port of Rotterdam will face the problem of lack of space. A typical Dutch solution to create the necessary area for harbour and industrial terrain, is reclamation of land from the sea. This can be achieved by expanding Maasvlakte I with Maasvlakte 2. The exact amount of required terrain is subject...

The city of Mar del Plata is situated some 400 km South of Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. The city has two main incomes, namely industry and tourism. In summer, beaches of this Atlantic Ocean faced destination are packed with typical Argentine beach tents, which can be rented, and people from all over Argentina come to Mar del Plata....

Compared to land, rail and air, sea transport has proven to have the largest contribution to the transport of goods and is witnessing a continuous growth over the years. The existing ports are dealing with an increasing flow of goods and the transporting vessels, resulting in capacity problems. New innovations and technology are needed to...

Due to the growth of their population, urban development and the corresponding expansion of land use, several countries have decided to build artificial islands in the sea to decrease the pressure on the heavily used land space. The reclamation of the land from the sea is already widely applied, however, there is also an attractive new...
