Abstract:

This report consists of seven papers dealing with numerical simulation of beach change that were recently published by members of the Coastal Engineering Research Center, US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, and colleagues from other organizations. The papers collectively provide and overview of the state of research and engineering capabilities of numerical modeling of beach change, as well as a framework for understanding the role of modeling in planning and design of shore protection projects. The papers treat three major topics use of numerical simulation models in project planning and design, prediction of long-term shoreline change, and prediction of the response of the beach profile to storms. Five of the papers appear in the Proceedings of the Coastal Zone 89 conference one is an updated and expanded version of a paper appearing in that Proceedings, and one appears in the Proceedings of the Beach Technology 88 conference. Coastal Zone 89 was held under the auspices of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and Beach Technology 88 was held under the auspices of Florida Shore and Beach Preservation Association. Keywords Beach erosion, Coastal planning, Dune erosion, Longshore transport, Numerical models, Shoreline change, Shore protection, Storm erosion.
