Breakwater , Mechanical Engineering

Let consider the breakwater configuration shown in the figure below. The incident wave conditions at the breakwater are a wave height of 1.5m, wave period of 7.0s and a wave crest angle to the breakwater of 150. The water depth in behind the breakwater is constant at h = 4.9m. Give quantitative evidence to establish whether 0.2mm quartz sediments (ρs = 2650kg/m3, s ≈ 2.65) at location B will move or not.
