    Description

    The random wave flume is used for a wide range of coastal and offshore engineering studies including:

    - wave interaction with coastal structures such as seawalls and breakwaters;
    - the dynamics of moored structures in waves; sea-cage and floating breakwater studies;
    - wave energy studies;
    - wave transformation in shallow water; wave behaviour at reefs, etc.
