This report presents the results from mathematical models which have been used to calculate wave conditions in the vicinity of and island breakwater. The main purpose of the research described here was to provide engineers with guidance on the performance of offshore breakwater in coast protection schemes. The report contains diffraction diagrams for both monochromatic and random incident waves for normal and obliquely incident waves. It also provide illustration of the use of these diagrams in selecting breakwater layout, and in calculating other important parameters such as wave run-up overtopping.
