EFFECTIVENESS OF GEOTEXTILE TUBES AS A BREAKWATER CORE. (2018). Coastal Engineering Proceedings, 1(36), papers.80. https://doi.org/10.9753/icce.v36.papers.80


Geotextile Tube is an innovative technology which can be used as the core of a breakwater structure to address shoreline erosion problems. One of the advantages of Geotextile Tubes is the use of sand fill material which is available in most project sites. Another significant advantage of Geotextile Tube system is simple and fast in installation When a filled Geotextile Tube is combined with rocks and concrete armour units, Geotextile Tube Breakwaters become an effective structure in absorbing wave energy thus preventing shoreline abrasion.
