G6 COASTAL MORPHODYNAMICS

Objective



PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This cluster of six interrelated projects is executed by a group of six European hydraulic laboratories, with fourteen associated contractors. Its overall objective is to develop an agreed, validated and balanced numerical modelling concept for morphological problems in coastal areas, to be implemented, applied and tested by the leading European advisory institutes in this field. This is done by bringing basic process knowledge and modelling techniques to an appropriate level and integrating them into research versions of wave, current, sediment transport (cohesive, non-cohesive) and morphodynamic simulation models. Their concepts will be tested and validated, and the results will be set down in a handbook on coastal morphodynamic modelling. The methods to be used are: linear and non-linear theoretical analysis, laboratory experiments, field investigations and numerical modelling.
