The objective of the present research project is to give new practical design formulae for rubble mound slopes under random wave attack . The study is based upon a series of model tests. More than two hundred tests have been performed in order to vary systematically all the relevant variables . The main shortcomings i n Hudson-type formulae have been solved as a result of the present series of investigations. Stability formulae are given which include t he influence of wave period, number of waves, armour grading, spectrum shape, groupiness of waves and the permeability of the core.
