Projects in the Large Wave Flume

The Large Wave Flume is used for our own research activities, but is also accessible for other scientists. Such projects are either funded by the scientists themselves or receive support from the EU through the funding mechanism Transnational Access within HYDRALAB IV.

Irrespective of the funding, FZK is always actively involved in planning, execution and usually also the scientific analysis of experiments.

The list gives an overview of projects since 2011. The archive with older projects can be found here.

More details about GWK and the necessitiy of large scale model tests as well as a comprehensive description of selected projects can be found in the following article.
