LNEC's Irregular Wave Flume (COI1) is to be congratulated

LNEC's Irregular Wave Flume (COI1) is to be congratulated.

Half a century has elapsed since this innovative experimental facility, fully designed at LNEC, started giving us valuable results through the many 2D stability, overtopping and pressure evaluation scale models tested there.

As a matter of fact, this facility has been a key player in solving many problems associated with maritime works put by Portuguese and foreign engineers and it has been a driving force for LNEC’s research strategy in the area of coastal and port engineering, throughout this long period.
