La Cotinière harbour (France)
La Cotinière harbour extension
Client: CéteauCéans – Scale: 1/60
Design of the new fishing port in La Cotinière.
Objectives of the modelling
- Study of the hydraulic stability of the main and secondary breakwaters in wave basin
- Testing of wave disturbance inside the harbour
- Volume of overtoppings assessment
Length of breakwaters: 551m (main) + 386m (secondary)
Specific features of the project: The depth of the reef in front of the main breakwater is very shallow, resulting in seiches phenomena and high wave energy concentrations in certain places.
