Scale models tests of the port of Peniche breakwater were carried out at one of LNEC´s irregular wave flume.

The purpose of these tests was to evaluate the run up, overtopping, pressures on the superstructure as well as the damage evolution of the armour layer of the breakwater under different maritime conditions, including those associated with climate change scenarios.

Those tests were carried out under the project BSafe4Sea - SAFEty control through FORcast and decision support SystEm Analysis, ref. PTDC/ECI-EGC/31090/2017
