Through an anchor-type shape, the Dolos has super excellent stability against waves due to its interlocking between blocks.
- High wave-dissipating performance
Dolos wave-dissipating works maintain large surface roughness and suitable porosity. They allow the reduction of wave pressure on the breakwater, wave run up, and wave reflection.
- High stability
Combining two anchors forms shape of a single Dolos. Dolos wave-dissipating work realizes high stability due to the interlocking of blocks caused by such an anchor-like shape.
- Superior ecomomy
High stability of Dolos enable required mass against waves to be reduced up to a half of other conventional blocks. Therefore, the machinery for transport and installation can be reduced in size. Moreover, the high porosity of Dolos wave-dissipating works makes the total number of blocks fewer. Due to the characteristic above, Dolos wave-dissipating works indicate superior economy.
