Rubble-Mound Breakwater Inspection in Portugal

In Portugal rubble-mound breakwaters are the most common harbor protection structure. Since 1985, the Portuguese Civil Engineering Laboratory is in charge of the periodic visual inspection of most of these structures. This paper describes the procedures and the results of this work as well as the methodology that is being developed to combine the information from those inspections with that from the surveys of both the above water and submerged parts of the breakwaters in order to get better diagnoses for this kind of structures.
