WAVE LOADS ON AND BENEATH BONDED PERMEABLE REVETMENTS

Gisa Ludwigs, Hocine Oumeraci, Tijl Staal

Abstract


Permeable revetments made of bonded mineral aggregates may increasingly be favoured compared to standard revetments. However, the physical processes associated with the water–structure–soil-interaction for a wide range of wave conditions are still not well understood. Therefore, systematic large-scale model tests have been performed in the Large Wave Flume (GWK) of the Coastal Research Centre (FZK) in Hannover, with the intention of improving the understanding of these processes.
