Project: Instrumentation on behalf of the study of run-up overtopping on a rubble mound breadwater in Zeebrugge.

project duration
01-JUL-97 – 31-DEC-99
Wave run-up on a breakwater is very important with regard to the determination of the height of the structure. In situ test results show a 50% higher Ru than measured in laboratory, leading to higher wave-overtopping. The objective of this project is confirmation of the first in situ results. The expected impact on breakwater design is very important.
