User-Project Objectives

Summary:

The overall objective of the work is to undertake experimental investigation of wave run-up and overtopping of flood protection structures in the presence of wind and currents. A 1:3 slope dike, typical for river and estuarine flood protection, was investigated, in combinations of wave, wind and current conditions. Short crested waves and normal wave impact was considered.
