Dependence of the Stability of Mound Breakwaters on the Reflection Process

In this paper it is shown that by (1) an adequate control of the testing procedure and (2) evaluating the influence of the wave reflection on the main layer stability, a significant reduction of the experimental scatter is obtained and a coherent explanation of the evolution, during the experiment, of the number of the displaced units can be given. This work may help to reduce: (1) the design uncertainty and (2) the construction and maintenance of breakwater costs.
