Abstract

The paper reviews existing methods for the prediction of sediment transport under the action of combined waves and currents, and presents the results of an experimental programme aimed at verifying some of the main assumptions implicit in such methods. A logarithmic layer is confirmed to exist in the turbulent oscillatory boundary layer, and bed shear stresses and roughness lengths are compared favourably with theoretical estimates. Field observations of sediment transport under combined waves and tidal currents are shown to be predicted with the use of an appropriate power law. (A)
