Abstract: Submerged reef breakwater is an off shore breakwater, with its crest at or below the sea water level, used for protection of coastal structures and beaches from the erosion caused by wave action. Reef breakwaters are coast parallel structure built wi th an objective of reducing the wave action on the beach. It is constructed with uniformed size armour whose weight is sufficient to resist wave attack. Modeling of co-efficient of wave transmission (Kt) of such reef is a topic chosen for present study. Preliminary equation is derived from dimensional analysis as semi empirical equation which involves different parameters like wave characteristics, reef dimensions and nominal diameter of armour units. Simulation of results is undertaken with modeling in MATLAB. Results obtained are thus compared with experimental results and existing equations from the literature. Finally semi-empirical equation for Kt is established. � 2015 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
