SEDIMENT LOAD UNDER WAVES AND CURRENTS

D.H. Willis

Abstract


A technique is proposed for calculating sediment load, the mass concentration of sediment in motion, under combinations of waves and currents. The technique is based on the unidirectional flow method of Ackers and White, Ref. 1. The calibration of the technique against measurements of sediment load under waves has only just begun.
