WATER PARTICLE VELOCITIES ON A BERM BREAKWATER

Alf Torum, Marcel van Gent

Abstract


Water particle velocities in waves running up and down a berm breakwater have been measured for several wave heights and wave periods with a Laser Doppler Velocimeter (LDV). The measured water particle velocities have been compared with velocities computed with the numerical model ODIFLOCS. There is a fanagreement between the calculated and measured velocities.
