EVALUATION OF SHOREFACE NOURISHMENTS BY LINE MODELLING

Abstract


Shoreface nourishments are sometimes used as an alternative for ordinary beach nourishments. Many aspects of the behaviour of shoreface nourishments are still unknown. Shoreface nourishments affect the morphological behaviour of a coast. Line modelling might be used to study and to predict the behaviour of shoreface nourishments after execution. Although not every detail of the real behaviour can be dealt with, line modelling is still a rather simple but powerful tool. The recent application is discussed of the line modelling technique to study several shoreface nourishments carried out in the NOURTEC framework.
