Abstract

Reliability analysis and reliability-based design of monolithic vertical wall breakwaters are considered. Probabilistic models of some of the most important failure modes are described. The failures are sliding and slip surface failure of a rubble mound and a clay foundation. Relevant design variables are identified and a reliability-based design optimization procedure is formulated. Results from an illustrative example are given.
