For a reliable and efficient design method, knowledge of the transition of rock stability between steep and mild slopes is lacking. The goal is to describe the stability of rock slopes under wave attack in the transition zone of breaking waves between mild and steep slopes to provide insights into governing processes, mechanisms and quantified damage characteristics in order to contribute to an accurate design method.
