EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF THE WAVE AND CURRENT MOTION OVER A LONGSHORE BAR

J. Buhr Hansen, Ib. A. Svendsen

Abstract


The results presented in this paper are from a series of experiments in a wave flume modelling the onshore-offshore water motions over a bar bottom profile. In a true 3-dimensional natural situation the flow of water over the bar varies along the coast. In the experiments the flow of water over the bar is simulated by a controlled discharge through the flume.
