Title The interaction of breaking solitary waves with an armored bed
Creator Petroff, Catherine M.
Description This study investigates the interaction of breaking waves with a bed of loose angular material with a median grain size of 4.8 mm. It is motivated by the engineering problem of determining rock sizes for revetments used as protection for structures in the coastal zone and by the need for an understanding of the mechanics of material movement under waves. Both the effect of the bed on the velocities and accelerations in breaking and non-breaking waves, and the effect of breaking waves on...
