Breakwaters and Revetments
The coastal structures, such as breakwaters, are constructed to provide the calm basin for ships and to protect the harbor facilities. The determination of crest height of coastal structures is one of the most important design process among all procedures. The allowable wave overtopping and the wave transmission could be applied to design the crest height of structures. The experiments were conducted in 2-D wave flume in Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology (KICT) and the transmitted waves through the rubble mound structures and the overtopped waves were measured. The rubble mound strucutures has the crown wall.
