ONSHORE-OFFSHORE SEDIMENT TRANSPORT NUMERICAL MODEL

A. Swain, J.R. Houston

Abstract


A numerical model is presented for calculating beach profile development due to offshore sediment transport and tested with laboratory and field data. The model allows variable wave conditions, water level fluctuations due to tide and storm surge, arbitrary bathymetry, and arbitrary sediment size. The agreement between calculated and measured beach profile erosion is good.
