On the Stability of Berm Breakwater Roundheads and Trunk Erosion in Oblique Waves

Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalPaper without publisher/journalResearch


The stability of a berm type breakwater (sacrificial breakwater) was tested in a 3-dimensional model at The Hydraulics Laboratory, Department of Civil Engineering, University of Aalborg. The object was to study the stability/erosion of the breakwater head and the trunk, the latter exposed to both head-on and oblique irregular waves. To avoid too many parameters a simple breakwater geometry and only one class of stones were used.
