Abstract
In this work, the effects of storm representation on damage measurements of a breakwater are studied in a small-scale physical wave flume. In particular, a two-layer breakwater with cubic armor units randomly placed is considered. A storm recorded in the Mediterranean Sea is the basis to analyze the armor layer damage. Storm sea states are represented in the laboratory using four different methodologies: i) Real storm methodology (RSM, used here as benchmark test) ii) Classical methodology (CM) ...
