Apra Harbor Glass Breakwater Repair Analysis

CFD simulation of breaking wave forces on existing breakwater

Coast & Harbor Engineering performed coastal engineering analysis and design for the Glass Breakwater Repair at Apra Harbor, Guam. The Glass Breakwater, which is a rubble mound breakwater, sustained damage in 2002 by Super Typhoon Pongsona over an approximately 60-foot area. CHE evaluated previous failure mechanisms, developed design criteria, and commented on repair conceptual designs developed by the client.
