Abstract
Interlocking caisson-type breakwaters have recently gained attention for enhancing the stability of the conventional breakwaters. In this study, the dispersion characteristics of wave forces using interlocking systems connecting the upper part of caissons with cables in the normal direction of breakwaters were investigated. Based upon numerical experiments, the higher wave forces are transmitted through the cable as the angle of incident wave increases, while the maximum allowable wave force was capable of being increased by sharing the wave forces with the adjacent caissons. It was also found that the larger the stiffness of the interlocking cable, the larger the wave-dispersion effect.art of caissons with cables in the normal direction of breakwaters were investigated.
