AbstractThe dike in Den Oever has to be improved. To keep the dike as low as possible and to make it suitable for other uses, the choice was made to install a stepped revetment on the sea side. In order to determine the design wave loading, scale model tests and tests at full scale were performed. The comparison shows that loads, as a result of model and scale effects and by averaging the sensor signals, could be decreased by a factor 4 relative to the scale model tests.
