Description: Technical note
General: In 1986 the seaward end of the mainstem of the outer breakwater at Crescent City, CA, was rehabilitated using 680 fiber reinforced, 42-ton dolosse. As part of the Crescent City Prototype Dolosse Study (CCPDS), twenty of the 680 dolosse were instrumented to measure loading on the armor units. The instrumented units were placed near the center of the rehabilitated area. Four of the dolosse were placed in the bottom layer and the remaining 16 were positioned in the top layer. During the two years following the repair, a wealth of incident wave conditions and dolos loading and movement data were collected. Details of the CCPDS are presented in Howell, et al. (in publication).
