1.67 Sediment Transport and Coastal Processes
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.
