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...

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...
