For the design of the storm surge in the Eastern Scheldt barrier both physical scale models and numerical models were built. The principles of the applied numerical model based on the WAQUA system will be explained. The confidence gained in the capability of numerical models to reproduce current patterns nearby the storm surge barrier led to the decision to investigate whether numerical models can be used to compute current patterns near the planned sandfill closures of the compartimentation dams, without the additional use of tests in physical scale models. The performed tests are described. The results of tests led to the decision to rely entirely on numerical models for the design and execution of the sandfill operations in the closure gaps of the compartmentation dams. The results of t he investigations are discussed.Two applications, the Tholense Gat model and the Krammer model are presented.
