PREDICTIVE EQUATIONS REGARDING COASTAL TRANSPORTS

D.H. Swart

Abstract


Morphological changes are the result of gradients in longshore and onshore-offshore sediment transport. The coastal engineer is continually faced with engineering problems in which a quantitative knowledge of these morphological changes is required. For this purpose predictive equations have been developed for both longshore and onshore-offshore sediment transport, which are being used in practical applications. In this paper a few of these predictive techniques, as well as one of their typical applications, viz. to a beachfill problem, will be discussed.

Keywords
