Abstract : It is the purpose of this report to analyze the effect of wave absorbers on harbor agitation. A critical analysis of the previous studies on wave absorbers is presented. Then an attempt is made to improve the state of the art in the design of wave absorbers and in particular of rubble mound wave absorbers. A study on scale effects of wave absorbers built in scale models for studying wave agitation in harbors is also presented. Aside of the literature survey and general considerations on wave absorbers, a number of new theories have been developed and presented within this report. (Author)
