Abstract

The full scale infrastructure to measure wave overtopping at the Zeebrugge rubble mound breakwater is discussed. The measurement site and the specific set-up used for wave overtopping measurements is also described. Waveovertopping has been measured successfully at full scale, at the Zeebrugge breakwater during eight storm events. Prototype average overtopping rates from all eight recorded storms are also found within the 95% confidence interval of the prediction formula by van der Meer.
