INVESTIGATION OF THE EFFECTS OF BIO-FOULING ON THE PERFORMANCE OF A TETHERED FLOAT BREAKWATER

This report reviews the results of an experiment testing tethered floats in breakwater for fouling. Ten percent of the floats were treated with an anti-fouling paint against the remaining floats that went untreated. The results provided the opportunity to test a theoretical model for the performance alterations caused by bio-fouling.
