Pages: FLOATING BREAKWATER FIELD EXPERIENCE, WEST COAST hy Eugene P. Riahey I. INTRODUCTION The increased demand by the boating public and industry for more moorage facilities challenges the planners and designers of small-craft harbors to explore all alternatives in developing harbors that have adequate protection from wind waves and boat wakes.

The Floating Breakwater is a floating wave attenuator that utilizes recycled materials and vegetation to create a sustainable green infrastructure product. Layers of matrix sheets are adhered together using Coast Guard approved polyurethane marine foam.

The foam also provides buoyancy, enabling the breakwater to float. A nylon mesh netting with rings woven in. The deeper the breakwater is, the greater West Coast book wave dampening effect of the floating break wall.

This is an important thing to keep in mind while designing a floating wave attenuator system. West Coast Floatation Systems has been part of many small and large breakwater projects and we now focus on engineered systems to suit each individual.

Regional preferences exist; on the East Coast the most common type is the floating tire breakwater, while on the West Coast concrete units (single pontoon or catamaran) are prevalent. Reference to previous thread: thread Floating Breakwater My firm has been asked to provide a quote to design a floating breakwater for a marina on the Atlantic coast.

Floating breakwaters are inventoried. The various types are separated into 4 general categories, West Coast book are Box, Pontoon, Mat, and Tethered Float. The Tethered Float was identified as a special category but lacked sufficient prototype experience for detailed analysis. Advantages and disadvantages of the Box, Pontoon and Mat are presented.

The Floating Breakwater is a floating wave attenuator that utilizes recycles materials and vegetation to create a sustainable green infrastructure product.

Floating Breakwaters Along with our commercial floating dock systems, Kropf Marine also manufactures floating breakwater / wave attenuator structures for marina and harbour protection.

In many locations a floating attenuator represents a cost-effective alternative to a permanent breakwater, and it is typically easier to obtain permits for a. The well-established theory and model test results of floating breakwaters have given confidence to coastal engineers.

Many box-type floating breakwaters have been constructed at coastal areas with mild wave conditions. One example is the Holy Loch breakwater on the west coast of Scotland (see Fig.

4a).Cited by: The nature of British Columbia coastal and inland waterways affords many locations where floating breakwaters are or could be used to protect small-craft harbours from wave action. A field survey of many of the current breakwater sites is undertaken in order to establish qualitative performance criteria of various designs.

A two-dimensional numerical model is developed to Cited by: 1. The floating breakwater systems are based on SF Marina’s Industrial docking systems, enhanced with greater depth and mass to stop wave energy.

Breakwater construction can be either parallel or perpendicular to the coast, depending on the shoreline requirements. Types. A breakwater structure is designed to absorb the energy of the waves that hit it, either by using mass (e.g., with caissons), or by using a revetment slope (e.g., with rock or concrete armour units).
