Abstract

This report presents results of the experiments of the existing inlet and eight structural alternatives to the Sebastian Inlet from a movable bed model. It is intended to find solutions for improvement of boating safety and protection of beaches adjacent to the inlet. Based upon the experimental results from here and the fixed bed model study, which is summarized in Part I report, an optimum structural modification plan was then recommended providing a general frame of improvement scheme. The research in this report was authorized by the Sebastian Inlet District Commission of September 15, 1989. The University of Florida was notified to proceed on November 14, 1989. The study and report were prepared by the Department of Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering, University of Florida. Coastal Technology Corporation was the technical monitor representing the Sebastian Inlet District. (Document has 109 pages.)
