Some 63 breakwaters damaged by wave action have been restored between 1965 and 1972. Comparative data are presented for 63 examples in 49 harbors where some damage to the actual caissons was noted, encompassing caisson breakwaters damaged during construction to those finished at least with a concrete covering. Diagrams show the breakwaters before damage was sustained, the damage condition, and the restored cross section. Simple analyses are attempted on the total number of breakwaters damaged between 1965 and 1972 to clarify and trends in breakwater damage. (Author)
