Description: Technical memorandum
Preface: The Division Engineer, South Pacific Division, Corps of Engineers, initiated a model investigation to determine the optimum design of a tetrapod cover layer to stabilize a breakwater section at Crescent City Harbor, California, in multiple letter dated 3 February 1953· The Chief of Engineers authorized the Waterways Experiment Station to conduct the tests in a letter dated 29 July 1953. These tests were performed as a part of Civil Works Investigation No. 815, "Stability of Rubble-mound Breakwaters." Model investigation of the Crescent City Harbor breakwater was conducted during the period August 1953 to December 1953, and test results were forwarded to the Office, Chief of Engineers, in third endorsement, dated 31 December 1953, to letter from the District Engineer, San Francisco District, dated 11 December 1953, subject: "Repair of Crescent City Breakwater with Tetrapods.” Liaison was maintained during the course of the investigation by progress reports and conferences. Mr. W. H. Booth, Jr., of the Office, Chief of Engineers, visited the Waterways Experiment Station at various times in connection with the study. The model study was conducted in the Wave Action Section, Hydrodynamics Branch, Hydraulics Division, of the Waterways Experiment Station, under the supervision of Mr. E. P. Fortson, Jr., Chief of the Hydraulics Division, Mr. F. R. Brown, Chief of the Hydrodynamics Branch, and Mr. R. Y. Hudson, Chief of the Wave Action Section. Waterways Experiment Station engineers actively connected with the model study were Messrs. R. Y. Hudson and R. A. Jackson.
