LONGSHORE BED-LOAD TRANSPORT

Jesper S. Damgaard, Richard L. Soulsby

Abstract


An analytical formula for longshore bed-load sediment transport is derived. The derivation is based on sediment physics and the formula is therefore less dependent on calibration. The formula is compared to the CERC formula, a numerical model and field data.
