Title Laboratory design-studies of the effect of waves on a proposed island site for a combined nuclear power and desalting plant
Creator Vanoni, Vito Raichlen, Frederic
Description There were four major objectives to this investigation: 1) the determination of the degree of stability of the island face when constructed of armor units of various weights; 2) the run-up for a two-dimensional wave system impinging on the island face; 3) the run-up envelope on the four sides of the island in a three-dimensional model; and 4) the wave patterns caused by the effect of the island on its wave environment. Models having three different length scales were tested in the wave tank...
