research themes and infrastructuremain research themes Design, construction and monitoring of coastal structures (breakwaters, sea dikes, …) Research on structural response of coastal structures: • hydraulic stability of HARO® armour unit • pore pressure attenuation in a rubble mound breakwater • wave run-up and wave overtopping over coastal structures Renewable (wave, tidal, offshore wind) energyIntegrated research based on: on full scale measurements on prototype physical scale model tests numerical modellingmain infrastructure and know-how Jetty for prototype measurements on Zeebrugge breakwater Wave flumes for physical scale modeling Numerical wave flumes Laboratory instrumentation: PIV meter, profiler, run-up gauge, … Dept. of Civil Engineering, UGent
