TRANSPORTABLE BREAKWATERS--A SURVEY OF CONCEPTS

Reports dealing with transportable breakwaters were reviewed to collect performance data for a wide variety of configurations. Data on 106 concepts were assembled into an outline classification on the basis of structural form. The various configurations are shown in sketches and their performance data are summarized. The survey establishes a data base for developing an effective, mobile system for use in areas fully exposed to ocean waves. (Author)
