Advance in wave-driven unsteady sand transport

  title={Advance in wave-driven unsteady sand transport},
  author={Wang Yu-ha},
It is of great importance to study wave-driven unsteady sand transport processes for predicting the magnitude and direction of net sand transport rate. After introducing experimental observations on unsteady sand transport in large-scale oscillatory water tunnels wave flumes and field measurements over the past two decades,this paper thoroughly reviews the quantitative parameterizations of phase-lag effect and constructions of representative semi-unsteady net transport rate predictors,and… CONTINUE READING
