A PULSATING WATER TUNNEL

H. Lundgren, Torben Sorensen

Abstract


Since the basic mechanism of sand transportation in wave motion is so far unknown, there is a great need for observations of such transportation in large waves, especially, because of the possible difference of transportation in prototype wave motion from that in small model waves. By means of the apparatus described in the present paper the water and sediment motion near the bed can be reproduced on a prototype scale with the only modification that velocities at all points are in phase.

Keywords
