Coastal defences – design conditions

Our seniors have been involved in multiple coastal defense projects in the past, including the review of hydraulic boundary conditions for the Rotterdam and Ijmuiden harbor. These studies usually involve in depth analysis of extreme water levels, extreme winds and extreme waves and often include setting up numerical models to analyze the combined effects of these. Further, we have experience in coupling wind, wave and flow models to represent storm surge for standard storms and complex and highly dynamic ones like cyclones.”
