LABORATORY TESTS ON ARTIFICIAL SEAWEED

W.A. Price, K.W. Tomlinson, D.H. Willis

Abstract


Tests are described m which the effect of artificial seaweed on bed sediment movements due to waves was studied in a model Water velocities near the bed and coal particle velocities on the bed, within the seaweed array, were measured over a range of wave conditions and densities of packing of the seaweed The water velocity measurements were erratic, probably due to additional turbulence caused by the seaweed Coal particle movements on the bed were slowed down in the presence of seaweed.
