1.67 Sediment Transport and Coastal Processes


Class Info

Emphasizes the quantitative description of the mechanics of sediment transport in steady and unsteady flows based on hydrodynamic principles. Equations of motion for particles in a turbulent flow, entrainment, bedload, and suspended load. Bedform mechanics, ripples, and dunes. Flow resistance and boundary-layer mechanics for waves and combined wave-current flows. Wave-induced longshore currents, longshore and on-offshore sediment transport. Coastal protection.
