Abstract

A model for calculating the accumulated travelled stone distance is given based on the easy accessible parameters such Hs, Tp, θ, number of waves and Dn50. A comparison with selected prototype structures is presented showing the relation between breakwater damage and armour stone motion. The comparison also signifies that only little transport should be allowed to avoid severe damage. The best possible design of the berm breakwater with maximum utilization of the quarry when possible is suggested by Sigurdarson et al.
