The paper presents a design formula for Tetrapod armour on a 1:1.5 slope exposed to head-on random wave attack The formula predicts the relative number of broken Tetrapods as function of: the mass of the Tetrapods, the concrete tensile strength and the wave height in front of the structure. Thus, the formula addresses the observed problem of...

in this study an analysis concerning the pulsating and impact portion of the tensile stresses inside tetrapod armour units is presented. The data has been obtained from a series of small scale model tests performed at Delft Hydraulics. Stresses have been measured using a load cell technique developed and made available by Coastal Engineering...

The RMBFM-Project (Rubble Mound Breakwater Failure Modes) is sponsored by the Directorate General XII of the Commission of the European Communities under the Contract MAS-CT92- 0042, with the objective of contributing to the development of rational methods for the design of rubble mound breakwaters. 11 institutes from the European Union...

The slender, complex types of armour units, such as Tetrapods and Dolosse are widely used for rubble mound breakwaters. Many of the recent failures of such structures were caused by unforeseen early breakage of the units, thus revealing an inbalance between the strength (structural integrity) of the units and the hydraulic stability (resistance...

The rational design diagram for Dolos armour should incorporate both the hydraulic stability and the structural integrity. The previous tests performed by Aalborg University made available such design diagram for the trunk of Dolos breakwater without superstructures (Burcharth et al 1992). To extend the design diagram to cover Dolos breakwaters...
