This note presents laboratory experiments conducted in a wave-current flume, concerning piling-up and filtration at low crested rubble-mound breakwaters of different permeability. The experiments tested 4 barrier geometries, 2 water depths, 5 irregular waves and 2 barrier materials for a total of 80 test cases. The experimental apparatus permits a simple and accurate measurement of the total water inshore flux induced by the wave loads, overtopping and filtration through the barrier crest. Original measurements are presented.

Abstract

This note presents laboratory experiments conducted in a wave-current flume, concerning piling-up and filtration at low crested rubble-mound breakwaters of different permeability. The experiments tested 4 barrier geometries, 2 water depths, 5 irregular waves and 2 barrier materials for a total of 80 test cases. The experimental apparatus permits a simple and accurate measurement of the total water inshore flux induced by the wave loads, overtopping and filtration through the barrier crest. Original measurements are presented.
