Abstract:

The long-range goals of this research are to develop, using laboratory experiments, theoretical and, in some cases, numerical analyses and field observations, a basic understanding and, eventually, a predictive capability of the behavior of large bottom particles cobblesmines in the shoaling, wavebreaking and swash zones. Here, the size classification of cobbles used by the American Geophysical Union as particles in the diameter range 6.4 to 25.6 cm is employed. Disk-shaped anti-tank mines are of comparable size and density.
