DYNAMIC STABILITY OF ROCK SLOPES AND GRAVEL BEACHES

J.W. van der Meer, K.W. Pilarczyk

Abstract


More than 150 tests have been analyzed in order to describe the dynamically stable profiles of rock slopes and gravel beaches under wave attack. Relationships between profile parameters and boundary conditions have been established. These relationships have been used to develop a computer program. This program is able to predict the profiles of slopes with an arbitrary shape under varying wave conditions, such as those found in storm surges and during the tidal period.

Keywords
