Abstract

Very often rubble mound breakwater designs seem to be a result only of stability considerations corresponding to design wave conditions. Designers tend to put too little emphasis on practical problems related to construction, maintenance and repair. As is discussed in the paper due consideration of these problems Ieeds to a more economical design in terms of lower total costs during the structural lifetime.
