Effects of seawalls on the adjacent beach.
University of Florida Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering Department,
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.)
