The stability of low-crested rubble mound structures has been treated before by various researchers. In the first phase of this study two data sets from different laboratories were combined to one homogeneous data set. Re-analysis of these data resulted in a design diagramme for the stability of the seaward side, the crest, the rear and the total armour layer of the structure. Secondly, model tests were performed on carefully selected rock with different rock shapes (angular, flat and rounded… CONTINUE READING
