Integral design of hard sea defence of Maasvlakte 2. Part II: Physical model testing of cube revetment and reef.

Loman, G.J.A., B. Hofland, S.C. van der Biezen and J.G. Poot (2012)

In early 2013, the design and build of Maasvlakte 2 will be completed. This dual paper provides a retrospective on the design of the hard sea defense constructed between 2010 and 2012. Part I focuses on the re-use of material and constructability. Part II summarizes some physical model test findings of cube revetment and reef. The paper demonstrates the result of an integral design approach in which functional system-oriented requirements were verified
by combining expertise on physical and numerical modeling, re-usability, and constructability.
