Abstract

In this study, an effective methodology for evaluating the potential failure risk of caisson breakwaters has been developed. In the proposed model, two indexes, ETSD and EFEC, are used to evaluate the sliding failure and bearing capacity failure, respectively. Based on these indices, the degree of damages of the breakwaters can be estimated stochastically and quantitatively. Hence, using this method it is expected that planners will be able to prioritize the implementation of breakwater reinforcements amongst a large number of breakwaters, and designers will be able to better determine appropriate caisson geometries for a given future storm.
