The wave transmission coefficents for rubble mound structures with the superstructures were investigated using two-dimensional hydraulic tests. Most previous studies on the wave transmission coefficient were about the low crsted structures. And the main armors were almost the rock and the superstructures were not constructed. The superstructures have an important role in reducing the wave overtopping, improving the stability and so on. In this study, the wave transmission coefficient for the rubble mound structures covered with the tetrapod (TTP) on the slope with the superstructures were investigated. Also the effect of the width of superstructures and the number of armour layer in front of the superstructures were investigated.
