  • Greben, JM; Gledhill, Irvy MA; Cooper, Antony K; De Villiers, R (2010-01)
    The authors examine the question of stability of breakwater structures using the simulation software PhysX. This “physics engine” can be used to construct various packings of breakwater elements, each of which can be used ...
  • Cooper, Antony K; Greben, JM; Van Den Bergh, F; Gledhill, Irvy MA; Cannoo, BR; Steyn, WJVDM; De Villiers, R (South African Conference on Computational and Applied Mechanics SACAM08, 2008-03)
    A variety of armour units are used to protect breakwaters, piers and other harbour infrastructure, serving both to absorb the impact of violent seas and to reduce overtopping. A common type of armour unit is the dolos. ...
  • Cooper, Antony K; de Villiers, R; Greben, JM; van der Bergh, F; Gledhill, Irvy MA (SACAM10, 2010-01)
    A variety of concrete armour units laid on top of rubble mounds are used to protect breakwaters and other harbour infrastructure. Coastal engineers build three-dimensional physical scale models to understand the dynamic ...
