Semicircular Caisson Breakwater for Miyazaki Port

Design development for semicircular caisson breakwater to be constructed for Miyazaki Port, Miyazaki, Japan, on soft foundation at shallower water area, to reduce the foundation reaction on the breakwater. Semicircular caisson provides the increased stability with wave pressure acting toward the circle center, resulting into the light weight breakwater as a whole.
