Sizing of a wave protection structure and analysis by means of 3D scan measurements
Study of a wave protection structure for artifical islands
Client : Royal HaskoningDHV - Model scale : 1/30
Royal HaskoningDHV has appointed ARTELIA to undertake 2D physical model tests with a view to dimensioning the wave protection structures for the artificial islands located within Al Nouf Field in the North-East Bab area (NEB).
Study of 2 typical cross-sections
Aim of scale model
-Check the capacity of the components of the present spillway,
-Study the flow conditions;
-Test the capacity of an additional PK Weir type spillway;
-Check the energy dissipation conditions with two different outlet chute solutions.
Description of scale model
-Large part of the reservoir represented to ensure that approach currents were correctly represented;
-Existing and manoeuvrable gates;
-Additional developments e.g. PK Weir;
-Two types of chute: smooth chute with flip bucket and stepped chute.
