Abstract:A relatively simple rubble mound breakwater has been used to protect a large lagoon, itself then progressively filled by dry waste materials, some (potentially) sensitive to possible erosion. The breakwater is exposed to an extreme tidalrange(~12m) and wave attack can exceed Hs ≈ 8m at 1:200 year return. Since construction, a part of the breakwater length has shown signs of unusual damage. This paper describes analysis of that damage, the derivation of Joint Probabilit Analysis conditions, and the development of refurbishment options taking account of current conditions, and potential future changes to waves and water levels.
