Detailed course on the main design methods for rubble mound breakwaters, with commentary on the practical implications.

Summary

Seawalls or breakwaters have been built on the coastline since the earliest stages in man's development of the coastal zone. The primary purposes of such structures are to defend land against erosion or flooding or to protect areas of water for navigation, anchorages or sheltered moorings. Many coastal, shoreline, or harbour structures are required to serve multiple purposes, some of which may change in time. One such type of coastal structure consists of a rubble mound or slope formed of quarried rock protected by layers of rock and/or concrete armour units.

This course combines detailed teaching on the main design methods for rubble mound breakwaters, with commentary on the practical implications. Strong emphasis is placed on understanding the concepts behind the main design methods, being familiar with representative parameters and with key outputs, so hands-on tutorials are included throughout the course.
