Among government projects for reduction of coastal disaster, coastal maintenance project stage 1(2000~2009) and stage 2(2010~2019) to reduce coastal erosion and sedimentation are currently under process. In performing the coastal maintenance projects, it is necessary to install artificial concrete armor units for coastal protection. Presently in Korea, products manufactured in Japan are applied to the site, or blocks self-developed by the construction firms are installed. However, there is a lack of technical reviews such as verification of hydraulic characteristics, securing the stability and design techniques. This study is intended to develop waterfront shore protection blocks with good accessibility of people and excellent coastal disaster reduction and protection capability. Through this study, hydraulic characteristics and stability coefficients of shore protection blocks could be drawn.
