Analysis of Sliding Stability of a Submerged Double-T

A sliding stability analysis was conducted for a pre-cast concrete double-T to be used as an innovative type of shore protection at Cape May Point, New Jersey. Three analytical methods were used to find the dynamic wave-induced force: (1) drag force using linear theory; (2) drag force using stream function theory, and (3) wave force assuming linear, long waves. Sliding stability was checked as both a stand-alone structure and in the presence of a perched beach. It was found that the structure was safe against sliding for all the wave events considered.
