All files have been named according to the convention "{testname}_{datatype}.{fileextension}". Data type: Video File format: MPEG-4 (*.mp4) Measuring device: Nikon D5100 Description: Video footage of the wave flume tests that were processed to obtain water surface elevations and runup velocity. Recorded at 60 frames per second (FPS). Data type: Velocity File format: comma separated values (*.csv) Measuring device: Nortek Vectrino Description: Time record of fluid velocity in the x- and z-directions, meaured in metres/second (m/s). The x-axis runs parallel to the flume centreline with +x pointed in the direction of incident waves (i.e., travelling away from the wave generator). The z-axis is oriented along the vertical with +z in the upwards direction. Data type: Force File format: comma separated values (*.csv) Measuring device: ATI mini45 Description: Time record of slope-parallel and slope-normal force acting on an armour unit on the structure slope, measured in Newtons (N). Forces have not been corrected for buoyancy.
