Wave tank demonstration showing the impact of coastal defences on flood risk

The JBA Trust wave tank shows how different combinations of coastal defences and wave and tide conditions affect the potential for overtopping and flood risk.
Over-topping rates can be measured for the following defences and conditions: 
- beach during a storm surge 
- vertical and recurved sea walls
- stepped and sloped revetments
- rock armour
- submerged near-shore breakwater
