IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

THE EFFECTS OF WAVE INDUCED PORE PRESSURE ON SLOPE STABILITY OF CONVENTIONAL AND BERM BREAKWATERS CONSIDERING WAVE HEIGHT AND WATER DEPTH
Author : ALIREZA SHAFIEEFAR , ALI FAKHER
Wave action on rubble mound breakwaters causes an excess pore pressure due to some physical processes e.g. phreatic storage and dynamic impact. This excess pressure is attenuated by the porous flow inside the breakwater core. Slope stability of a rubble mound breakwater is usually measured by checking the safety factors in extreme tidal levels with constant water levels and pore-water pressures. A semi dynamic approach is used in this paper to analyze slope stability of conventional and berm breakwaters. The
