INTRODUCTION The natural tendency of sea waves to form groups in a random wave field has been recognized as a phenomena of a significant influence in a variety of coastal processes and ocean engineering problems. Medina and Hudspeth (). High sea waves tend to appear in groups rather than individually. Be-cause of the nature of wave grouping, it appears that it may be an impor-tant influence on the stability of rubble-mound structures. A succession of high waves that exceeds some arbitrary threshold value.

PY - Y1 - THE EFFECT OF WAVES ON RUBBLE-MOUND STRUCTURES mound is composed of large-scale roughnesses, during the run-up of waves on the structure the influence of the Reynolds Number in the region of maximum potential damage should be . In Zeebrugge (Belgium) prototype wave run-upmeasurements are carried out on the northern part of the western breakwater protecting the outer harbour. The breakwater is a typical rubble mound breakwater armoured with 25 ton grooved cubes. A mea uring jetty with a total length of 60 m is constructed on the breakwater. The. STABILITY ANALYSIS FOR A RUBBLE-MOUND FOUNDATION THROUGH IRREGULAR WAVE TEST by Masato Yamamoto* and Tsutomu Asakawa** ABSTRACT Irregular wave tests have been conducted to research into the stability characteristics of armor units for a rubble foundation of a composite breakwater. A cover layer to protect the rubble foundation from erosion.

For a rubble-mound breakwater with a certain damage level and surf similarity parameter, the relationship between the wave significant height and the number of waves in Eq.

An offshore breakwater is designed for the construction of a LNG-terminal. For the slope stability analysis of the rubble mound breakwater the existing and the extreme wave climate are considered. Pore water pressure varia-tions exist in the breakwater and its permeable foundation. A wave trough combined with the moment of maximum. The influences of wave groups and spectral shape on the stability of rubble mound breakwaters have been investigated by several researchers up to now. But, results were not conclusive in these researches, where different wave grouping and spectral shape parameters were used.
