WAVE FORCES ON RUBBLE-MOUND BREAKWATERS AND JETTIES
The data presented in this report were obtained from tests made in connection with Civil Works Investigation No. 815, 'Stability of Rubble-Mound Breakwaters,' and model studies of problems concerning the repair of specific breakwaters. These data are compared with available prototype data for two breakwaters for which model tests were conducted, and conclusions are drawn as to the applicability of the small-scale test results in the design of full-scale structures.
