Sediment transport

Wave induced sediment transport is of high importance with respect to natural erosin of sandy coastlines and dunes. In order to protect beaches and dunes on the long run, it is necessary to understand cause and effect of sediment transport.The understanding of underlying physical processes is also indispensable for the planning of 'soft' coastal protection measures such as beach replenishment.

Besides loose sediment, this research area also addresses sand pockets and containers made from geotextile. These are used for dune stabilisation and short term protection during particularly severe storms, for instance, but are also used more and more as scour protection within the offshore industry.

Research questions that are addressed with a combination of large scale model tests and numerical simulations are:

  • Erosion and transport mechanisms due to waves and currents
  • Beach erosin and shore nourishment
  • Dune erosion and dune reinforcement
  • Impact of structures on sediment transport (near and far field)
  • Investigation of coastal cross- and long-shore sediment transport
