Description: Technical note
Purpose: To present an overview of empirical relationships available for the design and prediction of beach response to single or segmented detached breakwater systems. Several of these relationships have shown to predict prototype response fairly well. This CETN summarizes information presented in Rosati (1990), and supplements the general information on detached breakwaters presented in CETN III-22 (1984).
