    Abstract

    Work on scour around breakwaters (both vertical-wall breakwaters and rubble-mound breakwaters) has been described. Both 2-D scour at the trunk section of a breakwater, and 3-D scour at the head have been considered. Mechanisms responsible for the scour processes have been recapitulated, and counter measures against scour have been discussed. Design diagrams and formulae have been provided.
