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)
