Abstract

Under the attack of storm waves, there are many destructions of coastal structures due to scouring, sinking and sliding. These types of destructions areconsidered to be in close relation to the dynamic behavior of sand bed around the structures. In this study the characteristics of pore water pressure and stresses in the sand bed around a breakwater under the attack of superposed waves are treated theoretically. The results show that during the crest or the trough being in front of the structure the strength of sand bed around the structure decreases notably and the unstable zone will occur.
