Wave run-up on a breakwater is very important with regard to the determination of the height of the structure. In situ test results show a 50% higher Ru than measured in laboratory, leading to higher wave-overtopping. The objective of this project is confirmation of the first in situ results. The expected impact on breakwater design is very important.
