Project Aims:

At the state of the art in coastal engineering, there is not a general agreement about the meaning of the so called Composite Modelling Approach (CMA) and how to make it a practical concept. In general context it concerns the use of all the available research tolls like theoretical analysis, experiments and numerical models in a "balanced methodology".

We propose a methodology that is based in large-scale models and a small-scale models in order to study a given phenomenon by means of the exploration with high detail of a large range of variability of its characteristic parameters. We call this approach a Composite LAboratory PROcess Modelling (CLAPROM). It requires insight into the problems of scale-effects and laboratory-effects and this can only be acquired through continued scientific research in large and small scale models, exploiting booth research tools to their full extent.
