THREE DIMENSIONAL EFFECTS OF SEAWALL ON THE ADJACENT BEACH

Takao Toue, Hsiang Wang

Abstract


The effects of seawall on the adjacent beach Is examined by the three dimensional physical model test. The experiment results are analyzed by means of the volumetric change analysis and the shoreline change analysis. The results show that the groin effects are dominant but they are localized within a region spanning three or four times of seawall length for the cases tested.
