Understanding of the forces exerted by tsunami waves on sea walls and coastal buildings has leapt forward through research that we conducted with University College London (UCL) using a third generation tsunami simulator.
HR Wallingford’s tsunami simulator - in a 70m long and 4m wide channel - is the largest device in Europe. Pictured with Ian Chandler and Esther Gomes from the Urban Waves project team. Continue reading ›
Bayonet GPE – the free online overtopping tool developed at HR Wallingford – is now live for coastal engineers at www.overtopping.co.uk. The tool builds on more than three decades of computer modelling in the field, and employs sophisticated statistical modelling to predict overtopping with a wider range of information than ever before.
