From previous engineering projects it turned out that it is difficult to determine the transmitted wave height of floating breakwaters without performing physical models or using numerical models. In this thesis it is investigated which steps should be taken during the preliminary design process in order to predict the effectiveness (wave...

Floating breakwaters (FBs) have been widely used as an alternative solution to protect coastal sites especially small harbors and certain areas which are not suitable for rubble mound breakwaters. Floating breakwater cannot completely stop the incident wave action. Instead, it attenuates the wave action by partially transmitting, partially...

The coast of Bulgaria is subject to erosion. Because of this fact, around the town of Balchik, which is situated on the Black Sea coast, almost no sandy beaches are present. Last years there have been vast tourist developments in and around Balchik. Because of these developments, the province demands solutions to adapt coastal protection...

The beach in front of the hotel Sirius is suffering from a retreating coastline. Bathymetry and beach profiles were measured. With the data from previous years the long term evolution of the coast was analyzed. The main conclusions were that the beach in front of the Sirius hotel is still suffering from erosion and if this erosion trend...

The sport of surfing has increased tremendously in popularity in the last decade and surf breaks around the world are progressively getting overcrowded with surfers. This overcrowding is an annoyance to surfers themselves since surfing is an individualistic sport, one wave for one surfer. This coastal problem has been addressed by science...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
