A QUASI-3D SURF ZONE MODEL

Jung Lyul Lee, Hsiang Wang

Abstract


This paper presents theoretical circulation patterns in both cross-shore and longshore directions on the plane beach slope. In the model an amended form of radiation stress which is consistent with the wave energy flux in the wave-current coexisting field is presented. Comparison of theoretical surf zone properties with laboratory experiments showed good agreements. Finally, a quasi-three dimensional model suitable for the entire nearshore zone is presented by linking the depth-integrated properties with vertical profiles.
