Offshore windfarms promise to become an important energy source. Building these farms, many engineering problems arise. One specific problem concerns the local scouring of bottom material due to the combined action of currents and waves. The aim of the study is to improve existing design criteria for scour protections, based on a literature study, an experimental study and numerical modelling.
