Experimental facilities

The Coastal Engineering research group has 2 physical wave flumes, in which experimental studies are performed. The wave flumes are extensively used for research in the context of Master's theses, PhD theses and projects for government or industry. More info here.




Ghent University, the Catholic University of Leuven and Flanders Hydraulics Research will use the "Coastal and Ocean wave Basin (COB)"  (dimensions: 30m x 30m x 1,4m) to study the impact of waves, tides and wind on coastal structures and to study Marine Renewable Energy solutions. The basin is planned to be operational in 2O21.
