Abstract

Model and experimental investigations have been performed to examine a bed load formula and to predict two-dimensional beach transformation. Laboratory experiments were carried out to count the number of sand particles in motion and to measure water particle velocity at each instant of a wave cycle in a wave flume. The results were compared with a bed load formula derived by modifying the Madsen-Grant bed load formula.
