In order to design reliable coastal structures, for present and future scenarios, universal and precise damage assessment methods are required. This study addresses this need, and presents improved damage characterization methods for coastal structures with rock armoured slopes. The data used in this study was obtained from a test campaign...

This paper describes a method to measure the rocking motion of lab-scale armour units. Sensors as found in mobile phones are used. These sensors, data-storage and battery are all embedded in the model units, such that they can be applied without wires attached to them. The technique is applied to double-layer units in order to compare the...

A method to quantify, analyse, and present the settlement of single-layer concrete armour layers of coastal structures is presented. The use of the image processing technique for settlement analysis is discussed based on various modelling
studies performed over the years. The accuracy of the technique is assessed, and the application of the...

A new and symmetrical single layer armour unit, the crablock, has been designed in the UAE. One breakwater was reconstructed with crablock, but very limited testing had been performed. Just to become more acquainted with this new unit, pre-competitive research at a university has been performed, which is the subject of this paper. Being a new...

In the design of rubble mound breakwaters, nowadays single layer systems using concrete armour units have become more common practice compared to conventional two layer systems. However, after the introduction of the accropode in eighties, a small number of single layer armour units have been developed over the years; for example core-loc, A...

The Crablock is a symmetrical unit, this in contrast to the units that have been applied most in the past. Essentially, this is the main difference. All other units have six “obstacles” that insure interlocking, but they are not symmetrical. All those units are placed randomly in a certain way with more or less contacts to neighbouring units. A...

Numerical modelling has the potential to probe the complexity of the interacting physics of rubble mound armour systems. Through forward modelling of armour unit packs, stochastic variables such as unit displacement and maximum contact force per unit during an external oscillatory disturbance can be predicted. The combined finite-discrete...

In de Van der Meer formulas for armour stability the Notional Permeability is used as a parameter. Unfortunately the physical basis of this parameter is weak. It is therefore suggested to use a relation between the Notional Permeability P and the reduction of wave run-up due to infiltration into the breakwater. The advantage is that the latter...

A desk study has been carried out regarding interface stability of granular filter structures. Actually, the project focuses on two particular aspects: (1) interface stability as function of the thickness of the filter layer consisting of standard armourstone gradings, and (2) interface stability of gravel mixtures with a wide gradation The...

The effect of single layer interlocking armour unit breakage on the hydraulic armour layer stability and potential damage progression is addressed in this paper. A 2-dimensional scale model of a rubble mound breakwater with an armour layer consisting of Xbloc armour units was tested. The residual armour layer stability with broken units was...

Experience has shown that the stability parameters relating to breakwater armour unit stability vary considerably for steep foreshores when compared to milder foreshore slope. Furthermore, the change from the deep water spectra (Tm0) to the shallow water wave spectra (Tm-1.0) does not fully explain the difference. Leading on from recent...

De Bouwdienst van Rijkswaterstaat heeft WL Delft Hydraulics opdracht gegeven voor het uitvoeren van 2D fysisch modelonderzoek ten behoeve van een mogelijke renovatie van de havendammen van IJmuiden. Het betreft enerzijds modelonderzoek om meer inzicht te verkrijgen in mogelijk optredende schademechanismen bij de huidige constructie (Proevenserie...

Experience has shown that stability parameters for breakwater armour are different for steep and shallow foreshores, as well as for deep and shallow water. A change from a deep water spectral information (Tm0) to shallow water spectral information (Tm-1,0) does not completely explains this difference. Tests have shown that stability also depends...

In case of coasts with steep foreshores coastal structures suffer more from damage than normally could be expected from given boundary conditions at deep water. For that reason in many guidelines it is recommended to apply a heavier class of rock in those cases; manufacturers of single layer units (like Accropode, Core-loc or Xbloc) recommend a...

Bij WL is onderzoek uitgevoerd naar stabiliteit van breukstenen taluds bij (zeer) ondiepe voorlanden. De paper voor Coastal Structures 2003 "Stability of rock slopes with shallow foreshores" door van Gent, Smale en Kuiper is een samenvatting van het werk. Hierin wordt voorgesteld een andere periodemaat te nemen dan in de van der Meer formule en...

Physical model tests were done on an armour of Tetrapods, placed in a single layer. The objective of the investigations was to study the stability of the secondary layer, and to see if the material of this secondary layer could be washed out through the single layer of Tetrapods. It was concluded that secondary armour is not washed out through...

The coastal team of Delta Marine Consultants [DMC] have taken the initiative to develop a new concrete armour unit for application on breakwaters and shore protections. Following the preliminary model tests conducted at DMC, 2-D hydraulic model tests have been carried out at Delft Hydraulics in October 2002. The experimental set-up and test...

In a classical design approach to breakwaters a design wave height is determined, and filled in into a design formula. Some undefined safety is added. In the method using partial safety coefficients (as developed by PIANC [1992] and recently also adopted by the Coastal Engineering Manual of the US Army Corps of Engineers [CEM [2003]) the degree...

Recent research has shown that it is possible to use concrete cubes as a single armour layer on breakwaters. However, this is only possible in case a placing density of at least 70 % is achieved. In lab-tests it is no problem to place cubes with this density, however it is questionable if such a placing density can be achieved in prototype...
