Abstract:

In 1984, Burns Harbor was nominated for inclusion in the Monitoring Completed Navigation Projects Program sponsored by Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Burns Harbor was approved for monitoring in 1985 because it met both generic and site-specific selection criteria. This report contains independently prepared chapters with detailed descriptions of five major elements of the overall study at Burns Harbor which are project history, analysis of wave measurements, extremal analysis of hindcast and measured wave data, evaluation of breakwater settlement, and a structural stability analysis.
