Description

At the Engineer Research and Development Center, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, two-dimensional wave flumes and three-dimensional stability wave basins are used for design validation of coastal structures. An important tangible benefit of verifying designs in the laboratory is reduction of future maintenance and repair costs over the structure life. In addition, the risk of catastrophic failure is greatly reduced.
