These tests cover a very wide range of water depths, some of the tests are in the range of DELOS experiments.

These tests have been carried out to obtain the pressure distribution around a pipe covered with a rubble mound structure. The water depth is higher than the range we will use for DELOS experiments, but these tests will provide data point for the calibration of the VOF model we will use in DELOS. Photographs show some of the techniques and tools we will use in DELOS tests.
