Cobble Sea Defence: Hydraulic Interface Stability of Sand underlying a Single Filter Layer
datasetposted on 31.05.2013 by A. (Arthur) Zoon
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
A cobble sea defence appears to be an easy constructible protection, with relatively low total costs of ownership. Flume tests show that sand under such single layered constructions is stable. However, it is not exactly known how the hydraulic loading of a breaking wave is reducing in the filter. Two datasets containing pressure measurements in a revetment were available for identification of this reduction. The first set is a dataset of a test performed in the Großer Wellenkanal (Hannover), for improvement of the understanding of all relevant processes in Elastocoast revetments (obtained from the Braunschweig University of Technology). The second set was a Deltares set (not included)
