Stability of stone- and dolos-armored, rubble-mound breakwater heads subjected to nonbreaking waves with no overtopping by Robert D Carver( Book )
8 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of the model investigation reported herein was to obtain design information for stone and dolos armor used on breakwater heads and subjected to breaking 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 sea-side slope of the structure, angle of wave attack, wave period, and wave height

Dolos armor units used on rubble-mound breakwater trunks subjected to nonbreaking waves with no overtopping : final report by Robert D Carver( Book )
5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This investigation describes a portion of a research effort to provide fundamental data for the design of rubble-mound breakwaters. This report addresses the use of dolos armor on breakwater trunks subjected to nonbreaking waves and with no overtopping. The majority of the tests reported herein were designed to determine the stability coefficient, K, and runup and rundown values for the above conditions. Additional limited tests were conducted to show what effects (1) varying the first underlayer stone material from 1/5 to 1/20 of the armor weight (Wr) would have on armor stability, wave runup, and wave rundown; (2) placing the dolosse in selected geometric patterns would have on stability; and (3) reducing the number of dolosse used in the cover layer would have on stability
Stability of rubble-mound breakwater Lahaina Harbor, Hawaii : hydraulic model investigtion by Robert D Carver( Book )
3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A hydraulic model study was conducted to investigate the adequacy of two breakwater sections proposed for Lahaina Harbor, Hawaii. The purpose of the study was to determine the stability of the structure when attacked by the largest waves which may occur in the area, the amount of wave overtopping occurring for the most severe wave condition, and the magnitude of transmitted wave heights associated with a selected range of incident wave conditions. All tests were conducted in a 5-ft-wide, 4-ft-deep, and 119-ft-long concrete wave flume at an undistorted linear scale of 1:22, model to prototype. It was concluded that both proposed breakwater sections will maintain their structural integrity, meet the nonovertopping criteria, and prevent excessive wave energy transmission through the breakwater
Investigation of random variations in stability response of stone-armored, rubble-mound breakwaters by Robert D Carver( Book )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this investigation was to obtain a better understanding of variations in the stability response of stone armor when used on breakwater trunks. More specifically, the goal was to quantify the random variations that may occur from one test to another. Based on results of model tests described herein, it was determined that breakwater stability may be greatly affected by random variations in testing; thus, repeat testing is a must. Also, test results clearly show the influence of wave period with the lower stabilities occurring at the lower values of d/L, i.e., longer wave periods in shallower water
King Harbor, Redondo Beach, California, breakwater stability study : hydraulic model investigation by Ernest R Smith( Book )

Breakwater rehabilitation study, Crescent City Harbor, California : coastal model investigation by R. Clay Baumgartner( Book )
9 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An undistorted scale hydraulic model study was conducted to develop an adequate repair plan for a section of the Crescent City breakwater which as armored with dolosse. The damaged area was to be repaired with 42-ton dolos. It was desired to quantify the number of armor units required, the optimum slope on which to place the dolosse, overall constructability, and methods of stabilizing the transition areas. Based on results of model tests, a combination of trenching and buttressing with 25-ton armor stone is a constructable method of stabilizing the transition area
Rubble-mound breakwater stability and wave-attenuation tests, Port Ontario Harbor, New York : hydraulic model investigation : final report by Robert D Carver( Book )

Investigation of wave grouping effects on the stability of stone-armored, rubble-mound breakwaters by Robert D Carver( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
High sea waves tend to appear in groups rather than individually. Because of the nature of wave grouping, it appears that it may be an important influence on the stability of rubble-mound structures. The research documented in this report was conducted to obtain a better understanding of the effects of wave grouping on the stability of stone armor when used on breakwater trunks. Results of this study show stability to be influenced by wave period, spectral width, and wave grouping intensity. Levels of wave grouping tested herein are achievable at some, but not all, prototype locations; therefore, results should be applied on a case-by-case basis.

Stability response of stone- and dolos-armored, rubble-mound breakwater trunks subjected to spectral waves by Robert D Carver( Book )
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this model investigation was to obtain design information for stone and dolos armor used on breakwater trunks and subjected to selected spectral wave conditions. More specifically, it was desired to determine the required weight of individual armor units (with given specific weights) needed for stability as a function of armor type, wave height and period, and sea-side slope of the breakwater. Based on test results, it was conducted that: 1) Stability of both armor types is influenced by wave height, wave period, breakwater slope, and, to a lesser extent, water depth. 2) A new energy based stability number which correlates strongly with the relative depth was developed. 3) Stone stability was more strongly influenced by changes in breakwater slope than was dolos stability, and 5) Dolos test results showed more variability, i.e., were less repeatable than the stone stability tests.

Waianae small-boat harbor, Oahu, Hawaii, design for wave protection : hydraulic model investigation by Robert R Bottin( Book )
5 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A 1:50-scale (undistorted) hydraulic model, reproducing approximately 1.4 miles of shoreline along the proposed Waianae Small-Boat Harbor site (beginning at Kaneilio Point and extending northwesterly), the surrounding reef, and sufficient offshore area to permit generation of the required test waves, was used to investigate the arrangement and design of proposed harbor configurations with respect to wave action. The basic harbor configuration consisted of (a) an outer breakwater, (b) a stub breakwater, (c) an entrance channel, turning basin, and main access channel, and (d) revetted fill areas in the harbor interior. Variations to the basic configuration involved changes in the alignments and lengths of the breakwater structure, the cross section of the breakwaters used, the size and shape of the turning basin, the location of fill areas, and the location of the launching ramp inside the harbor. A 60-ft-long wave generator and an automated data acquisition and control system (ADACS) were used in model operation
Sloping float breakwater study, Oregon Inlet, North Carolina : Coastal model investigation by Robert D Carver( Book )
5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two-dimensional (2-D) and three dimensional (3-D) hydraulic model investigations were conducted at an undistorted linear scale of 1:25 (model to prototype) to acquire data on transmitted wave heights, mooring line forces, intermodule connector forces, bottom impact velocities, and barge angularities as a function of wave climate. These data were needed as input to optimize the design of the sloping float breakwater (SFB) concept whose function would be to protect floating dredges being used for sand bypassing at Oregon Inlet, N.C. The 2-D test indicated that for the 89.6- and 118.4-ft SFB's (a) the transmission response of both structures is strongly dependent on wave period; (b) increasing the water depth significantly decreases the wave-attenuating capabilities of both structures; (c) for most wave conditions, mooring forces are similar for both SFB lengths and tend to increase with increasing depth; and (d) peak flow velocities under the structure are generally higher for the longer SFB. The 3-D tests revealed that the existing barge connector concept would be subjected to extremely high forces during impact on a rigid bottom. A softer seafloor condition greatly reduced the connector forces, but since a soft bottom condition could not be guaranteed at all prototype sites, it was determined that the design of the existing connector system for highly rigid bottom-impact forces was not economically feasible. A connector system design that is isolated from these highly rigid bottom-impact forces is feasible, but needs further indepth study. (Author)
