Abstract: The purpose of the model investigation reported herein was to obtain design information for stone and doles armor used on breakwater heads and subjected to breaking waves. More specifically, it was desired to determine the minimum weight of individual armor units (with given specific weights) required for stability as a function of sea-side slope of the structure, angle of wave attack, wave period, and wave height.
