Bas.Hofland@deltares.nl LinkedIn profile

Dr. Hofland is involved in advise, research, and modelling of hydraulic structures. He is experienced in coastal engineering, as well as many aspects of fluid mechanics, like flow, turbulence, and wave dynamics. At Deltares he has been involved in consulting and research work on coastal structures like breakwaters (e.g. rubble mound, caissons, and floating), revetments, flood barriers, and bed protections. A thorough knowledge on (physical) modelling techniques and measurement techniques helps in finding solutions for non-standard problems.
