Summary:
The main objective of this book is to describe from a deterministic point of view the sediment transport in the general wave-current situation. The first part is related to the flow and turbulence in combined wave-current. This part covers the turbulent wave boundary layer, bed friction in combined wave- current motion, turbulence in the surf zone, and wave-driven currents in the long- and cross-shore direction.

Abstract:

The main objective of this book is to describe from a deterministic point of view the sediment transport in the general wave-current situation. The first part is related to the flow and turbulence in combined wave-current. This part covers the turbulent wave boundary layer, bed friction in combined wave- current motion, turbulence in the surf zone, and wave-driven currents in the long- and cross-shore direction. The second part treats the sediment transport as a result of the wave-current action. This part includes an introduction to basic sediment transport concepts, distribution of suspended sediment in the sheet flow regime, description of bedforms formed by current and waves, and their influence on sediment transport pattern. Finally, the modelling of cross- and long-shore sediment transport is described.
