Monte Carlo Simulation on Damage of Armor Stone Covering Composite Breakwater Mound

A new estimation method for cumulative damage of armor stones covering a rubble mound foundation of a composite breakwater is proposed. The method is based on a wave induced flow field near the breakwater mound, which is calculated by a numerical wave flume CADMAS-SURF, and successive Monte Carlo simulation. Trial computations and comparisons with experimental results demonstrate the validity and usefulness of the proposed method.
