The practical engineer looking for an urgent solution to a sediment-related project often finds that the results of the relevant academic research are published in unfamiliar language in publications that are not easily available. Dynamics of marine sands bridges the gap between academic research and practical applications by summarising the research results in a unified form, backed up with worked examples and case studies. This comprehensive new book presents methods for calculating the various hydrodynamic and sediment dynamic quantities necessary for marine sediment transport applications, and recommends the most appropriate methods to use for engineering projects.- Introduction, including sections on a general procedure and errors and sensitivities - Properties of water and sand - Currents - Waves - Combined waves and currents - Threshold of motion - Bed features - Suspended sediment - Bedload ...
