The main objective of this project is to form the fundamental scientific base for the development of new design tools for impermeable dikes, mainly based on numerical modelling, and supported by physical models. The combination of the numerical and physical research will allow the validation of the numerical models. This project wants to ge one step further by developing a 'hybrid design method', in which numerical and physical modelling are combined, using the advantages and avoiding the disadvantages of both modelling ways. Prototype measurements of waves and structural response will be used for validation purposes.
