Seyed hamid Baiat Ghiasi; Mohamadamin Oyar Hossein; Mostafa Adineh; Vahid Khiali

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter 2019, Pages 24-31


  Breakwater walls are buildings that are built to prevent the collapse of the soil or other granular materials and the safety of the sea. One of the destructive phenomena in these structures is the impact of sea wave forces on the overturning phenomenon and instability of the coastal wall, which has damaged ...  Read More
