SCALE EFFECTS IN MODELS WITH LITTORAL SAND-DRIFT

R. Reinalda

Abstract


In the "De Voorst" Laboratory of the Hydraulics Laboratory, Delft, a model investigation has been carried out concerning the problems which present themselves around the Thyborjzfa Channel on the west coast of Denmark. This investigation was commissioned by the Danish Board of Maritime Works, who also supplied, the necessary data and information. In tiiis model a scale effect very clearly presented itself with regard to the littoral drift caused by waves, which led to phenomena m the model which deviated considerably from those in the prototype. As this scale effect is likely to occur in some degree in most of the models with littoral drift caused by waves, the publication of the phenomenon observed seems justified.
