Abstract
Specially shaped concrete blocks are used for the armor layer of rubble structure for breakers, seawalls, or other shore protection work. In this study, the hydraulic characteristics of the Modified-Tribar(MTB), which addresses the shortcomings of the Arch-Tribar, and the most widely used Tetrapod(TTP) in Korea are examined through hydraulic model tests. The MTB are much more stable than the TTP, as shown through the stability model tests under non-breaking and non-overtopping condition. The value of the stability coefficient(KD) was obtained at around 30. The model tests show that the TTP random two layers and MTB uniform 1.5 layers have similar effects, but the MTB one layer shows slightly low effects in dissipating wave energy. The TTP random two layer model is the most effective in reducing wave overtopping rate, under overtopping condition, while the MTB uniform one layer and the MTB uniform 1.5 layer models follow respectively.
