Abstract

The primary aim of the study is to experimentally investigate the stability performance of antifer block armour layers on a

1:1.5 slope, under the effect of irregular waves, for different placement methods. A literature review on the armour layer

stability, as well as 2 different stability formulas for different armour units, is firstly presented. The rubble mound structure

scaling requirements, scale effects in these models and the material used in rubble mound construction are discussed. The

results demonstrate that the best performing placement method corresponds to the regular placement method. However, in

this method, the reflected significant wave heights are higher than in the semi-irregular placement method.
