BARCELONA'S LITTORAL REGENERATION LOOKING FORWARD TO THE OLIMPIC GAMES. NUMERICAL MODEL

Vicente Negro Valdecantos, Manuel Quecedo Gutierrez

Abstract


The modern technique of Coastal Engineering has enabled the succesful modification of the environment, the recuperation and the stabilization of those sandy areas which due to human action, were in a process of regression and erosion. This work developes a mathematical and numerical model to adjust and analyze the variations between the dissipative profiles and the reflectives ones. The research also emphasizes the enveloping profile to calculate the stable behaviour of the beach.

Keywords
