The Coastal, Ocean And Sediment Transport laboratory at the University of Plymouth provides physical model testing with combined waves, currents and wind, offered at scales appropriate for device testing, array testing, environmental modeling and coastal engineering.

This is a flexible facility with the capability to generate short and long-crested waves in combination with currents at any relative direction, sediment dynamics, tidal effects and wind.

The facility is closely aligned with the COAST Engineering Research Group.
