LABORATORY STUDY ON BEACH PROCESSES DUE TO RANDOM WAVES

Ryuichiro Nishi, Michio Sato, Kazuo Nakamura

Abstract


The beach processes due to regular waves, grouping waves and random waves are studied. The beach models which consist of coarse or fine sand are set to consider bed load and suspended load sediment, respectively. To obtain the equivalent beach topographies between regular wave and random wave conditions, the concept of same energy flux and same representative wave height are applied.
