Abstract: Physical models are employees usually for testing and optimization final breakwaters designs. However, its application to stages construction is less common; nevertheless its use facilitates the design of these stages, as well as works safety works. Given this situation, the current paper provides an overview of possibilities that physical experimentation has in breakwaters construction, by exposing two relevant examples conducted at CEDEX: Barcelona and Coruna port enlargements.
