Shoitiro Hayami, Tojiro Ishihara, Yuichi Iwagaki

Abstract


This paper presents some aspects of the hydraulic model experiments in coastal engineering made at the Ujigawa Hydraulic Laboratory, Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University, including the experiments performed by using an estuary model basin and a high speed wind wave channel. In particular, the problems to which attentions should be paid from view point of similitude between model and prototype will be discussed in addition to the presentation of experimental results.

Keywords
