Abstract

The main purpose of a breakwater is to reduce the waves in an area. More often than not the objectives are to obtain acceptable mooring and manoeuvring conditions for ships, but breakwaters are also used for beach protection. Moreover, many of the principles related to the design of breakwaters are valid for groynes and sea-walls. Breakwaters are generally expensive structures the cost of which increases dramatically with water depth. Another important aspect which must be considered in the overall layout is the influence on currents and sediment transport. This can cause significant accumulation and erosion, not only close to the structures but also at a distance.
