Modelling of Cross-Shore Flow and Morphology

by J. A. Roelvink, Delft Hydraulics, Emmeloord, Netherlands,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Sediments


A one-dimensional, time-dependent model is presented which describes the evolution of wave groups and associated long waves over an arbitrary profile, in a short-wave averaged sense. Model results from test runs with periodic wave groups are shown, and implications for the cross-shore sediment transport are briefly discussed.
