Activity: Talks and presentationsTalks and presentations in private or public companies


As a part of the Mast programme (MAS02-CT92-0023) the outer breakwater in Zeebrugge, Belgium has been subjected to extensive investigations. A section of the breakwater is instrumented enabling prototype measurements consisting of wave recordings and pore pressures inside the breakwater, ect. Along with prototype measurements, large-scale model tests (1:20) have been carried out at Flanders Hydraulics, Borgerhout covering a wide range of wave conditions and corresponding tests in scale 1:40 and 1:70 are conducted in the University College Cork and Aalborg University respectively.
