Artificial reef structures North Sea

In this study the stability of the proposed structures is verified. Thereto, first the extreme MetOceanboundary conditions (waves, flow) are identified. Next, the expected scour in the vicinity of the structures is calculated considering the local morphological circumstances (soil composition, bedforms, depth, etc.). Using both flow flume experiments and analytical calculations the stability of the structures is determined, both for the failure mechanism turning over as well as sliding.
