Abstract:

More than 4,000 laboratory measurements of wave reflection from beaches, revetments, and breakwaters are used to develop methods for predicting wave reflection and energy dissipation coefficients. Both monochromatic and irregular wave conditions are considered and the prediction techniques apply to both breaking and nonbreaking wave conditions. Author
