The goal of this research was to verify the formula found by Hoffmans  for structures loaded by currents (flow parallel to the filter construction). As part of the verification of the design formula ten flume experiments were performed in the Environmental Fluid Mechanic Laboratory at Delft University of Technology. After the execution of the model tests an extensive analysis was made based on the performed model tests and model tests performed in the past (Bakker , Haverhoek , Wouters , Konter et al. , Van Huijstee and Verheij  and Van Velzen ).
