Abstract : Increased commercial activity has created the need for an additional rubble-mound breakwater to protect the Pier J basin of the Port of Long Beach, California. The proposed breakwater will be located on the leeward side of the middle breakwater and will provide for dissipation of long period wave energy. The investigation described in this report was conducted to determine, by two dimensional flume tests, the stability response of the proposed breakwater as initially designed, and based on the results of this test, to test additional plans as needed. Transmission of long period wave energy was also measured for selected plans.
