WAVE BREAKER INDICES IN FINITE WATER DEPTH

Based on the analysis and comparison of wave breaker indices by geometric, kinetic as well as dynamic stabilities and verified by observation, the value alpha, which is equal to H/Lthkd by Miche's result and may be modified by Goda's result, is suggested as the wave breaking criteria. The applicable values of alpha for pure waves or wave-current co-existing field are given in this paper. They are smaller than Miche's result (0.142), and they have been verified by model tests.
