IMPROVEMENT OF THE MOST ACCURATE LONGSHORE TRANSPORT FORMULA

J.S. Schoonees, A.K. Theron

Abstract


The ability to predict the longshore sediment transport rate accurately is essential for many coastal engineering applications. Because of the existance of a large number of existing longshore transport formulae, it is important to know which formula to use/apply. Thus, the most universally applicable formula was identified and tested against a comprehensive data set. This formula (Kamphuis formula) was also re-calibrated and guidance is given regarding its use.
