SFD E 04 Goda 2000 whereas the example problem uses SFD E MUN34 CEM 2006 which yields slightly lower values E 20 The spreadsheet was adjusted to use the newer CEM method Also the horizontal moment equation in the spreadsheet contained an error pressure 1 was included twice in the third term This was corrected in Appendix a attached With the aforementioned corrections the spreadsheet yielded

2006 Example Problem VI716 See Part VI Chapter 7 Complete 10 November 2010 CEE 782 Design ofCoastal Structures Homework 3 19 Summarize the design in Example Problem Vl716 What caisson width B would you choose for design Why Using the design variables from Example Problem VI 7 16 given the xed crest height caisson width B40 ft and TP14 sec the structure would be unstable against sliding and stable against overtopping shown in the spreadsheets attached However if the caisson width B is increased to 60 ft then the structure is now stable against sliding The Example Problem also suggests considering TP11 sec and 9 sec At TP11 sec the safety factors for sliding and overtopping do change but not substantially enough to change the caisson width from 40 ft At TP9 sec the safety factors for sliding and overtopping do change but not substantially enough to change the caisson width from 60 ft If you were allowed to increase the crest height then you could decrease the width from 60 to around 50 decreasing the crosssectional area and incurring cost savings Discuss what is di erentnew in Table VI 5 5 4 The Goda formula is modified to include impulsive forces from headon breaking waves It concerns the formula for the pressure p1 at the still water level SWL The coefficient orquot is modified using a new equation for on The wave pressure distributions for provoked breaking waves are estimated using this new Table VT554 The older breaking wave forces method of are detailed in the Shore Protection Manual 1984 and can result in very high estimates of wave force as much as 15 to 18 times those calculated for nonbreaking waves These estimates are too conservative in most cases and could result in costly structures CEM 2006 Discuss the use of Partial Safety Factors for Sliding failure T able VI625 and Overturning failure T able VI6 26 as found in the CEM 2006 and in Kamphuis 2010 Note the wrong tables were referenced in the problem statement The correct tables are Vl 6 24 for Sliding failure and Vl6 25 for Overturning failure Before using the values in the aforementioned tables it is necessary to apply adjustment factors to account for bias of the Goda equations for vertical and horizontal forces and moments The Goda bias factors are applied before using partial safety factors To do otherwise would have the affect of applying multiple factors of safety to the same variables and inadvertently increasing costs of construction Sliding factors of safety include both resistance y Z and loading y H components The resistance FOS is applied directly to the sliding failure design equation whereas the loading FOS is applied to the significant wave height HS Note when applying F OS for the design wave height Hdes 18Hs rather Hdes y H x HS When incorporating partial FOS39 for overturning only the partial safety factor for loading y H is applied and is used in the same 10 November 2010 70f9 CEE 782 Design ofCoastal Structures Homework3 8 of9 manner as for sliding although values are different for the same probability of failure Pf When using partial factors of safety in the modi ed spreadsheet values for sliding and overturning from columns U and V respectively of 10 meet the speci ed level I design criteria 2 EXTRA CREDIT Incorporate partial safety factors for the sliding and overturning in the spreadsheet CEE 782 students may also to this for extra credit See Appendix C and D for spreadsheets incorporating partial factors of safety Since the partial factors of safety for loading are different for sliding and overturning at a given probability of failure the spreadsheet must be run with the corresponding values of y H to evaluate for sliding and overturning stability For example assuming deep water d L 24 43933 E 0054 gt 005 design without model tests and 039qus 005 high quality data at Pf 005 the sliding load FOS is 13 and resistance is 14 and for overturning the load FOS is 27 Using the example problem input variables and the above partial safety factors the spreadsheet yields a stable condition for sliding at B 4484 E 45 ft Appendix C and for overturning at B 4454 E 45 ft Appendix D The heel bearing pressure is acceptable for this value of B Under these conditions sliding is no longer the limiting design consideration 10 November 2010 CEE 782 Design ofCoastal Structures Homework3 9 of9 List of

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"
