THESEUS Deliverable ID2.5: Part F - Upgrade of rubble mound structures

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingReport chapterResearch


As a consequence of climate changes, coastal defenses are worldwide at higher risk of failure. Climate changes can lead to problems in terms of function, stability, and safety of goods and persons. To overcome the problems, different scenarios can be adopted, such as; 1) no upgrade actions and repairing the damages 2) upgrade of existing defences by e.g. changing the structure dimensions 3) perform strategic retreat and decommissioning.
Within the THESEUS project, the present work task, WT 2.5, focus on upgrading existing rubble mound breakwater defences. Solutions for upgrading parts of rubble mound structures are investigated by means of modifying the structure profile and/or adding structure elements. Results from this study will be incorporated in the THESEUS decision tool (DSS-tool) and in the guidelines in work package 5 (WP.5).
