Breaking waves

In the wave flume of the water lab waves smash against a steel gate. Orson Tieleman and Ermano de Almeida (Hydraulic structures & flood risk) measure the forces and vibrations that arise. They want to know whether very large steel flood gates such as in the Afsluitdijk can withstand the high wave forces during storms, to protect us from flooding.
