Abstract:

This report is fifth in a series of case histories of US Army Corps of Engineers Corps breakwater and jetty structures at nine Corps divisions. Chronological histories are presented for 58 breakwater and jetty structures located within the US Army Engineer Division, North Atlantic NAD, which includes the New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Norfolk Districts. Presently, there are approximately 161,500 lin ft of breakwater and jetty structures managed by NAD. Structure cross sections of rubble-mound or stone- filled timber crib account for most of this total. Thirty-three of the project structures have been repaired since construction. Other construction materials that have been used include steel, dolosse, concrete cap, concrete block, and timber.
