The effect of waves on the stability of dredged slopes is a significant factor which has to be taken into account in the initial design and estimation of maintenance cost of a dredged channel. The effects of waves can be considerable, the passage of a wave will have two effects. Firstly the slope will be subject to fluctuations in hydrostatic pressure and secondly to a shear stress generated by the orbital motions of the water. The objectives of the study was primarily to develop and evaluate the laboratory equipment for the investigating the stability of slopes under waves also to determine the stability of one specific mud under a range of conditions.
