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.

This class has 1.061 as a prerequisite.

1.67 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by Staff.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.

In the Spring 2011 Subject Evaluations, 1.67 was rated 6.0 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the MIT to Recalibrate the Smoot — Slice of MIT from the MIT Alumni Association site or on the 1.67 Stellar site.
