PROTOTYPE APPLICATIONS OF A GENERALIZED SHORELINE CHANGE NUMERICAL MODEL

Hans Hanson Krueger, Mark B. Gravens, Nicholas C. Kraus

Abstract


Three case studies are described in which long-term shoreline response was simulated using a numerical model. One project was along Kachemak Bay, Alaska and involved evaluation of design alternatives that included a detached breakwater, beach fill, and a revetment. The second project was on the north New Jersey coast and characterized by a long seawall and numerous groins. The third project was a model test of shoreline change behind three detached breakwaters Lake Erie. The shoreline response model used, called GENESIS, is demonstrated to have applicability to a wide range of commonly encountered shore protection situations.
