The purpose of this MSc thesis is to do an experimental study into the spatial and temporal variation of rocking armour units. Armour units on a breakwater slope under wave loading can sometimes start to move back and forth, this phenomenon is known as rocking. Rocking can lead to significant impacts between armour units, which can result in...

Many rubble mound breakwaters are nowadays made with an armour layer consisting of single layer interlocking elements. The stability of these armour layers could well be influenced by the irregularity of the rock underlayer, as that influences the degree of interlocking. Especially for the new types of regularly placed armour, this might be...

XblocPlus is a new uniformly placed single layer armour unit, developed by Delta Marine Consultants (BAM Infraconsult). This report focuses on the stability of the first row of armour units, as this row is interlocked less than other rows. When the first row starts to slide, this is a big threat to the stability of the entire armour layer....

This thesis tests the influence of the under layer profile on the stability of the armour layer of concrete interlocking armour units. The analysis is aimed to offer insight into the influence of different under layer profiles on the stability of the armour layer. Furthermore the thesis includes a test of the design guideline of the under layer...

One of the failure mechanisms of a rubble mound breakwater is the failure of its armour layer. In order to determine the stability of an armour layer, the design load has to be defined, which is in fact the wave that attacks the structure. Being a highly stochastic phenomenon, the wave action is not easily defined, while there is always some...
