Abstract:

An undistorted scale hydraulic model study was conducted to investigate the stability response of two alternate types of breakwater sections considered for repair of the San Pedro Breakwater. Based on results of model tests, a molded concrete block repair section and a stone rubble-mound repair section that are more stable than the laid-up granite block section of the existing breakwater were developed.
