Abstract: This book presents a state-of-the-art review of the design, analysis, hydraulic model testing, and prototype experience of a new class of coastal structures that produce economical designs using available quarry material under severe wave attack. Papers discuss how berm type breakwaters differ from conventional layered breakwaters. Design procedures and parameters are reviewed. Prototype berm breakwaters are studied and research needs are identified.
