EQUILIBRIUM PROFILES AND LONGSHORE TRANSPORT OF COARSE MATERIAL UNDER OBLIQUE WAVE ATTACK

E. van Hijum

Abstract


In order to obtain design criteria for artificial gravel beaches, a research programme was drawn up to study the behaviour of gravel beaches under wave attack. The present paper gives the main results of the investigations into beach formation and equilibrium profile characteristics, including the longshore transport rate of beach material under regular wave attack with varying angles of wave approach,

Keywords


equilibrium profile; longshore transport; coarse material; oblique wave attack
