Abstract
    The paper reports on small and large scale experiments carried out to assess the response of prefabricated caissons with internal rubble mound in terms of wave reflection. The research was conducted to analyse the effect of the model scale on the structural response and the treatment of the scale effects. Physical model tests were carried out in the small and large scale facilities at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, in Barcelona. The authors applied the Burcharth et al (1999) approach to treat scale effects and compared the results with the Matteotti’s ones (1991).
