Abstract:

Procedures developed and conditions existing during 10 experiments on Laboratory Effects in Beach Studies LEBS are contained in this volume as a convenient reference to the analyses of LEBS data reported in separate volumes. This report also serves as a procedural manual for a common type of coastal engineering experiment, and it describes the wave generators used to produce data published in previous reports by the Coastal Engineering Research Center CERC. Special attention is given to the problem of running movable-bed experiments in outdoor facilities. Recordkeeping, construction of initial profile, water level control, wave height measurement, analysis of wave envelopes, ripple effects on profile accuracy, temperature measurement, and observation of breakers and currents are also discussed.
