Abstract

The nature of scour of a flat sand beach in front of a seawall was studied. Laboratory experiments indicated that the depth of the scour depends to a large extent on the wave characteristics. The comparison bewteen the theoretical calculated values and experimental results shows reasonable quantitative equality.
