Abstract:

An analysis was performed to estimate the magnitude and duration of waves which approach the North Bay area of Kelleys Island, Ohio, and determine the type, length, and orientation of breakwaters and wave absorbers required to provide good entrance conditions and adequate protection to boats moored in the proposed harbor of refuge. Use was made of wavehindcast methods, wave refraction and diffraction theories, and model data and design procedures developed at the Waterways Experiment Station for evaluation of the stability characteristics of rubble-mound breakwaters and wave absorbers.
