TOTAL RATE AND DISTRIBUTION OF LONGSHORE SAND TRANSPORT

Akira Watanabe

Abstract


Longshore sand transport rate has been computed, for 2,520 cases covering field- and laboratory-scale conditions, using a general formula for local transport rate in a coexistent wave-current field proposed by the present author. The computed total transport rate has been well related to the alongshore component of wave power and two other parameters. Cross-shore distributions of the longshore transport rate have also been studied.
