Abstract

This study was carried out to examine the effects of seawalls on the adjacent beach by three dimensional model test. The results obtained from model test were analyzed in terms of volumetric changes and shoreline and hydrographic change to quantify the effects of seawalls. The experiments were carried out in the wave basin of Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering department, University of Florida. A model seawall was installed on the test beach (19mxl4m) which was initially molded into equilibrium shapes. During the test, hydrographic surveys were conducted at regular time intervals. The main variable in the experiment is the wave angle. Cases both with and without seawall were tested. (141pp.)
