Mechanics of Coastal Sediment Transport

The main objective of the book is to describe from a deterministic point of view the sediment transport in the general wave-current situation. For this purpose, the book is divided into two major parts. The first part of the book is related to flow and turbulence in combined wave-current. This part covers the turbulent wave boundary layer, bed friction in combined wave-current motion, turbulence in the surf zone, and wave-driven currents in the long- and cross-shore direction. The second part treats the sediment transport as a result of the wave-current action. This part includes an introduction to basic sediment transport concepts, distribution of suspended sediment in the sheet flow regime, description of bedforms formed by current and waves, and their influence on sediment transport pattern. Finally, the modelling of cross- and long-shore sediment transport is described. This book is useful for students with a background in basic hydrodynamics.
Product Details


"... the book presents an integrated and valuable work on the advanced mechanics of coastal hydrodynamics and sediment transport, well worth the attention of graduate students and professionals specializing in the field." Journal of Coastal Research "... the authors have managed to create an informative balance between theory, measurements and numerical modelling ... I fully recommend the book, which is published at a very reasonable price as Volume 3 of the Advanced Series on Ocean Engineering by World Scientific. The book will stand alone but if some readers feel that it needs a mate on the book shelf, the best companion may be Volume 4 in the same series, titled Coastal Bottom Boundary Layers and Sediment Transport by P Nielsen." International Journal of Marine Geology, Geochemistry and Geophysics "The book is very well-written. Basic ideas are outlined in a straightforward manner and more complex topics are dealt with in the form of worked examples. At no point is the mathematics beyond anyone with a first degree in engineering but familiarity with basic hydraulics and wave mechanics would be an advantage. Both authors have in the past made many major contributions to this field and it is, consequently, hardly surprising that there is a strong emphasis on North-European research literature." J. Fluid Mech. "... this is a very interesting text that will assist a number of young scientists dealing with sediment transport ... The material is explained quite clearly and the approach is quite analytical, making this text most valubale to coastal engineers and scientists ... This book is perfectly suited to all graduate students and scientists interested in coastal engineering. It is the kind of digest that will bring readers back to the book long after graduation." Journal of Hydraulic Engineering
