Podcast about full-scale testing of revetments in the GWK+

In this podcast Nils Kerpen shares his experience about testing stepped revetments in full scale at the Large Wave Current Flume (GWK+).

What are the main challenges in building a setup for a full scale experiment and during running the experimental campaign? Nils also explains how full-scale flume experiments can help in quantifying the scale effects related to wave impulse pressures modelled in small-scale tests.

The podcast was recorded during the Coastlab24 conference in Delft.
