Wave loads on a slender pile within a group of piles are studied by means of (i) large-scale laboratory tests carried out in the Large Wave Flume (GWK) of the Coastal Research Centre (FZK) in Hannover, and (ii) small scale experiments performed in 2 m-wide wave flume of Leichtweiss-Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources (LWI), in Braunschweig, Germany. The small scale model tests (LWI) were scaled down (1:6.5) by Froude law from the large scale model tests (GWK). Scale and model effects are examined by comparing the results of small and large scale laboratory tests.
