Within a basic research programme at the Coastal Research Centre (FZK) in Hannover large-scale wave experiments were performed with single vertical and inclined Cylinders (Oumeraci, 2004). Additionally, cylinder groups were investigated with special reference to shelter and amplification effects depending on cylinder spacing. Nonbreaking regular and irregular waves as well as breaking freak waves were generated. The test set-up and some first results of the experiments looking to the maximum wave loads are reported in the paper.
