Full Scale Wave Overtopping Measurements

The objective of this paper is to describe the full scale infrastructure that was used to measure wave overtopping at the Zeebrugge rubble mound breakwater. Detailed data from one storm event and the results for eight storm events are shown. Therefore, first the measurement site and the specific set-up used for wave overtopping measurements is described. Then the measurement data and the results are described before preliminary conclusions are drawn. The paper is limited to the description of the measurement site and instrumentation. A detailed outline of the analysis of the measurement data are given in another paper.
