SAND TRANSPORT RATE UNDER WAVE-CURRENT ACTION

Akira Watanabe, Masahiko Isobe

Abstract


Laboratory experiments were conducted to obtain data on sand transport processes and transport rates under combined action of waves and currents using an oscillatory-steady flow tank. The sand transport processes were classified into seven types. Four kinds of non-dimensional flow power parameters were defined, and their linear relations with the non-dimensional net transport rates were found for all the transport types.

Keywords
