PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL BEACH EVOLUTION MODEL

Takuzo Shimizu, Hitoshi Nodani, Kosuke Kondo

Abstract


The long-term bottom topography changes around the entrance of a fishery harbour were simulated by using the three-dimensional beach evolution model. The practical applicability of the model was demonstrated through comparisons with the actual topographical changes. And the equilibrium state of beach evolution due to construction of a coastal structure could be also predicted by repeating the calculation of the wave and current field and that of the bottom topography change.
