Two-dimensional tests of wave transmission and reflection characteristics of laboratory breakwaters by William N Seelig ( Book )
5 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Monochromatic and irregular wave transmission and reflection measurements were made for various subaerial and submerged breakwater cross sections. These two-dimensional laboratory tests included smooth impermeable breakwaters, rubble-mound breakwaters, and breakwaters armored with dolos unit. Wave transmission by overtopping was found to be related to breakwater freeboard wave runup, and breakwater crest width; a method of estimating transmission by overtopping coefficients is presented. The Madsen and White (1976) numerical procedure was found to be an important tool for predicting the amount of transmission through permeable breakwaters. Suggested procedures for estimating transmission coefficients have been incorporated into the computer programs OVER and MADSEN (included as appendixes) and these programs may be used to predict wave transmission coefficients for nonbreaking, breaking, monochromatic, and irregular wave conditions.

Estimation of wave transmission coefficients for overtopping of impermeable breakwaters by Seelig ( Book )
6 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Madsen and White (1976) analytical model of wave transmission through permeable breakwaters is combined with a wave transmission by overtopping formula to provide a method of predicting wave transmission coefficients for permeable breakwaters. Comparison of this combined prediction technique with physical model laboratory tests shows that the technique is useful for estimating transmission coefficients for design. A computer program was found the most convenient method of making predictions. The computer program and an example showing program use are included in an Appendix. (Author)

Shore stabilization with salt marsh vegetation by Paul L Knutson ( Book )
4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report is published to provide engineers and scientists with guidelines on using coastal marsh vegetation as a shore erosion control measure in coastal regions of the United States. This erosion control alternatives is suitable for relatively sheltered shorelines such as those found on bays, sounds, and estuaries. For various reasons this alternative has not been found to be effective in the Great Lakes, Alaska, or Hawaii. Criteria are provided on (1) determining site suitability, (2) selecting plant materials, (3) planting procedures and specifications, (4) estimating project costs, and (5) assessing impact

Weir sand-bypassing systems by J. Richard Weggel ( Book )
4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents a method for designing weir sand-bypassing systems. Jetties are generally shore-normal structures built at tidal inlets to fix the location of the inlet and associated navigation channel. In a weir-jetty system one or both jetties is constructed with a low weir section across which sediment can move into a deposition basin. The sediment caught in the excavated deposition basin is periodically dredged and bypassed to downdrift beaches to preclude serious erosion of those beaches. The design of a weir bypassing system requires knowledge of the wave and sand transport conditions at a site and involves locating and proportioning the jetties, weir section, deposition basin, and navigation channel, as well as selecting and designing the desired updrift and downdrift beach configuration. Methods of data analysis and interpretation for weir-system design are presented along with guidance on proportioning the various components of a weir bypassing system
Stability of stone- and dolos-armored rubble-mound breakwater heads subjected to breaking and nonbreaking waves with no overtopping by Robert D Carver ( Book )
6 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of the investigation herein was to obtain design information for stone and dolos armor used on breakwater heads and subjected to nonbreaking waves. More specifically, it was desired to determine the minimum weight of individual armor units (with given specific weights) required for stability as a function of (a) Type of armor unit; (b) Sea-side slope of the structure; (c) Angle of wave attack; (d) Wave period; (e) Wave height; Based on tests and results described herein, in which stone and dolos armor are used on conical breakwater heads and subjected to nonbreaking waves with angles of wave attack of 0, 45, 90, and 135 deg, it is concluded that: (a) The longer wave periods (2.00 and 2.75 sec) generally produce the lower stabilities; (b) Angles of wave attack of 45 and 90 deg are the most critical; (c) Flattening the slope from 1V on 1.5H to 1V on 2H does not improve stability of the stone armor
