Project: Optimisation of coastal defence works in front of the Flemish coast.

project duration
01-JAN-96 – 31-DEC-99
The coastal instability treats economical and safety (agression) as well as ecological (accretion Zwin) interests. The impact and e fficiency of different coastal defence systems will be studied comparatively in physical model tests. Moreover, a numerical model for the prediction of morphological evolution will be developed and calibrated. Finally the study must permit a more rationala management of the Flemish coast.
