Abstract


The project "Dynamics of Beaches" is carried out by a network of six European Universities within the framework of the Human Capital and Mobility Program of the European Union. The aim of the project is to improve the existing knowledge on physical processes governing the nearshore zone due to effects of submerged breakwaters. Within the project hydrodynamic and morphological experiments have been carried out. This paper discusses the results of the experiments that took place in a wave flume and the large wave basin at Delft University of Technology. The experiments were carried out with movable beds and varying wave conditions.
