Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN describes a mathematical model for rapid estimation of rates of infilling and bypassing at inlet entrance channels located on sandy or gravel shores. Infilling is assumed to occur by cross-channel transport. The calculation procedure requires information typically available or estimated in coastal navigation projects and is intended to provide guidance for projects where detailed studies cannot be performed. The procedure can be applied to any channel that meets the basic assumptions.
