Description: Technical Report
Abstract: An undistorted-scale hydraulic model study was conducted to investigate the adequacy of seven breakwater cross sections considered for use at Jubail Harbor, Saudi Arabia. Tests conducted in evaluating the various plans consisted of (a.) two-dimensional stability tests (Plans 1 , 2 , 2A, 3, 4, and 5), (b.) two-dimensional transmission tests (Plans 1, 2, 3, and 5), and (c.) three-dimensional stability tests (Plan 6). Test results indicate that for the selected design conditions 5.0-metric-ton dolos armor will be of adequate size for use on all portions of the Jubail breakwater svstem.
