NODO 2a - IHCantabria - CCOB / GTIM-GT

The Laboratory of Coastal Engineering, Oceanography and Hydraulics conducts physical model testing to study phenomena related to wave generation and propagation, wave-wave and wave-structure interaction, the stability and behavior of coastal protection structures, seawalls and marine structures, the behavior of floating structures, the operation of hydraulic valves and machines, and to test marine energy generation devices.

The capacities of the facilities, the experience of the staff members and the use of state-of-the-art numerical modeling software and advanced instrumentation allow us to conduct basic research testing on the behavior of fluids, structures and devices, to calibrate and validate all types of numerical models, and to test and optimize specific designs for applied fluvial and marine structures and models.
