Modeling Beach Erosion and Shore Evolution
The objectives of this paper are to review some hydraulic modelling techniques for the evaluation of beach erosion and shoreline evolution due to wave and current action. Both numerical...

Mass Transport in Mud Layer Induced by Wave Action
This paper analyzes the mass transport velocity in a two layers system produced by wave action. In a previous paper, Piedra Cueva (1933), a theory for linear water waves propagating in...

Wave Effects on Offshore Structures—Some Recent Research
The present paper summarizes methods of estimating wave effects on offshore structures, and highlights a selection of recent related research. Initially, certain aspects relating to the...

Experimental Research on Groyne Stability Under Very Oblique Wave Action
Most of the experimental research concerning the stability of coastal structures is focused on normal wave incidence. However, many of these structures are subject to waves which run predominantly...

Physical Model Testing of Broken Armor Stone
Cracking, breaking into two or more pieces, flaking, crumbling, and abrading may reduce an armor stone to a size where wave action can remove it from the structure causing a local instability....

Linearisation and Offshore Fatigue Reliability
In determining the force effects due to wave action on offshore structures it is conventional to use an equivalent linearisation to convert wave velocities to forces via Morison's equation....

Erosion of a Thin Lutocline Under Homogeneous Turbulence

A Piston-Type Nonlinear Wavemaker Theory
In this paper, the small-amplitude surface waves produced by a piston-type nonlinear porous wavemaker in an infinitely and a semi-infinitely long channel are studied. Analytical solution...

Marsh Erosion by Wave Action
This paper summarizes an analysis of salt marsh shoreline erosion, wind velocities and wave energy in Corte Madera Bay during an abnormally calm period in 1989. Winds during the study...

Freeboard Allowances for Chute Spillways
Allowances must be made for the physical phenomena which cannot be modelled, such as wave action, air bulking, splash and spray; the simplifications of behaviour implicit in the calculations;...

Unconventional Rubble-Mound Breakwaters—Concerns
A Seminar on Unconventional Rubble-Mound Breakwaters was held in Ottawa, Canada, on the 15th and 16th of September 1987. This paper is an attempt to summarize the general discussion that...
