Title: Physical Modelling Study of the Hydraulic Efficiency of Vertical Perforated Quay Walls
Issue Date: 2008
Abstract: The new multipurpose terminal, in construction on the inner side of the Leixoes south breakwater, Fig. 1, is composed by three new berths. For this terminal a solution based on the use of innovative blocks was chosen, with the aim of reducing the wave reflection. Even though they have been used before on a small fishing harbour, their hydraulic efficiency in terms of wave reflection has never been analysed. In this paper, the results of the hydraulic efficiency of the quay in terms of wave reflection will be presented for the tested configurations.Keywords: Physical modelling; Coastal structures; Wave reflection; Hydraulic efficiency; Perforated quay.
