Project description

This project will provide more insight in the response of dynamically stable scour protections around offshore wind turbine foundations. Within this research experimental tests at different scales and under varying wavecurrent conditions will be carried out and compared with each other and numerical results. This will result in the derivation of a new prediction formula for dynamically stable scour protections.
