AbstractThis paper describes the investigation of means of reducing wave action reaching the shoreward end of a power station cooling water outfall channel without resulting in significant head loss to the outflowing water. A variety of conceptual methods of reducing wave action in the outfall channel was examined. A physical model of the outfall was constructed. It was found that a rubble mound wave energy dissipator located in the outfall channel dramatically reduced wave action at the discharge seal pit.
