Abstract : Breakwaters, generally paralleling the shore and with crests above high water, are works of known value for shore protection. Underwater structures, parallel to the beach to cut down wave action and increase stability of existing beaches for recreation are observed. A model study, to determine the effect under varied conditions of underwater sills upon wave heights and power of waves is made. (Author)
