Final report on laboratory measurements on the Ostia case

More Info


Within WP4.2 laboratory investigations for the Ostia rubble mound breakwater are performed in the wave flume of Ghent University (later UGent) and in the wave basin of Flanders Hydraulics (hereafter FCFH). In order to check any influence that is typical for laboratory measurements and to identify possible causes for differences in results, tests with same characteristics are carried out in the two laboratories (UGent and FCFH). This report describes laboratory facilities at both UGent and FCFH and results of the physical model tests carried out in those facilities.
